Description

Paleo-Indian Period– 9200 BCE – 6500 BCE

Currently the earliest evidence for human habitation of South Texas dates from about 11,000 years ago during the Pleistocene Epoch [2,588,000-11,000 years ago] more commonly known as the last Ice Age. In this era South Texas was wetter and cooler. Hunters armed with spears and spear-throwers [atlatls] tipped with Folsom, Golondrina, and other points were attracted to these grasslands where mammoths, bison, camel, sloth, horse, deer, and smaller mammals thrived.
