Journal of Northeast Texas Archaeology
In this article we document an ancestral Caddo ceramic vessel that was accidentally discovered in the Sabine River basin on a camping trip, not far west-south west of Gladewater, Texas, in Upshur County. Ripley Engraved was made by Caddo potters of the Late Caddo period (ca. A.D. 1430- 1680) Titus phase. Sites of the Titus phase are known in East Texas from the Sulphur River basin on the north to the Sabine River basin on the south, but no core community of the phase is known or has been identified in this part of the Sabine River basin; such communities tend to be downstream in Gregg and Harrison counties.
