Found an old Indian Campground!

Was walking Kain today, through a stipped and windblown cottonfield, and found an old indian campground! I suspected this site was an old campsite but wasn't sure until today. I found a large rounded and somewhat polished grinding stone ( about the size of a grapefruit ) and several flint chips. This place has no indigenous stone other than cliche, and the grinding stone is some type of granite. The grinding stone has obviously been used for quite a while for grinding and the flint chips are obviously chips from arrowhead or skinning knife makings. I'm very excited! Can't wait to walk Kain through that same area tomorrow (weather permitting).

That's very cool! Is this on your own land? I am not familiar with natives in Texas, but I'm working on a large Mississippian/Woodland site in my area, and it's been wonderful.

Well, it's been farmed for years, so any disturbing happened long before I showed up.
