Description

Historic and Prehistoric Periods – 700-1850 CE

Fourteen hundred years ago bow and arrow technology appears in South Texas. About the same time warmer and wetter weather led to the spread of bison southward to the Nueces drainage for several hundred years. The onset of the Little Ice Age around AD 1300 the cooling and drying environment encouraged the bison population to move back to the northern grassland prairies. The resident human population returned to their earlier subsistence regime. A wide variety of arrowheads characterize this period. After the establishment of Nuevo Santander in the middle of the eighteenth century these stone points were joined by points made of glass and iron.
