This report concerns the analysis of an assemblage of ceramic vessel sherds and two clay figurine fragments from the Henderson site (41CY60on the Red River in the Rolling Plains of North Central Texas (Figure 1). This Late Prehistoric site was excavated in 1975 by students at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, under the direction of Dr. Philip S. Colee, but no report on the work was ever produced. The artifact collections eventually ended up at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory at The University of Texas(TARL), where they were studied and documented in the Summer and Fall of 2019by Dan Prikryl and I, affiliated researchers at TARL.
