Fossil camel foot bone on the left and a fossilized fragment of a large long bone (perhaps mammoth) found in the "transition zone" at the base of Morhiss Mound. These bones were in secondary context and had washed downstream from some original souce.

After the long bone fragment had fossilized, it was picked up and used as raw material to make a simple "stone" tool . Today, fossil bones and bone fragments are still found from time to time in gravel bars along the Guadalupe River. TARL Collections.
