Journal of Northeast Texas Archaeology
Thirty-nine bifaces found in the collections of the Museum of the Red River were recently analyzed. Mr. Donald Stewart recovered these bifaces from the vicinity of Lake Wright Patman during lake construction. Analysis of the biface cache was undertaken to gain some understanding of these specimens, despite the absence of provenience information and other details pertaining to their collection. Basic metric data and non-metric observations were taken. I also detail the collection of the biface cache, the history and archaeological background of Lake Wright Patman, results of the analysis, and some thoughts on the function of the bifaces.
