Excavations at Baker Cave
Intermittent excavations in a dry shelter in Val Verde County, Texas from April 1962 to July 1966 revealed well stratified deposits. The earliest deposits yielded late Paleo- Indian projectile points of the Plainview Golondrina variety, corroborated by two charcoal samples radiocarbon-dated at 8910+- B.P. and 9030+- B.P. Higher deposits produced projectile points from Early Archaic to Late Archaic. In addition to lithic materials, perishable materials from Mid-Archaic through Late Archaic were recovered. Features associated with the Archaic were recorded. Arrow points were recovered from the surface stratum but of insufficient quantity to indicate an intensive Neo-American occupation.
