Journal of Northeast Texas Archeology
In this paper we report on possible historic European trade materials found at the Willis Place #2 site (41BW147), an aboriginal site along the Red River a few miles west of Texarkana, Texas. The possible trade materials were recovered in the 1970s by the landowner, Mr. Julian Cranfill, from a ''fire pit" (or hearth?) exposed during plowing of a natural levee a short distance from the current channel of the river.
