Handbook of Texas Archeology:

Type Descriptions

Texas Archeological Society - 2009 Reprint Edition

 With a new Foreword by  Dee Ann Suhm Story and Edward B. Jelks

 Dee Ann Suhm and Edward B. Jelks (1962)

 

We have worked with the Texas Archeological Society to make this classic volume available once again.  As an added bonus, Dee Ann Suhm Story and Edward B. Jelks have written a new introduction to bring this important publication up to date. 

Undoubtedly the best state specific archaeological book we’ve found so far. The first half of the book contains the descriptions of sites and cultures and the second half is devoted to pottery and point typology with pictures of thousands of artifacts. Truly a comprehensive and detailed work, the originals are quite scarce and sell for $500.00 to $600.00 … if you can find one.
 

Please take a look at the Table of Contents (below) to see the level of detail contained in this fine publication.

This 8-1/4" x 10-1/2", 317 page, soft cover, facsimile reprint features 148 full page plates of pottery and flint types. $29.95

An important note about the reprint layout of this title: The original publication was a series of 3 hole punched pages that were put  into a binder so that it could be updated periodically.  As a result of this, the type descriptions were on the front of the page and the accompanying plates were on the reverse.  In this 2009 reprint we have moved the plates to face theIR descriptions which makes it much easier to read.
