Dart points (left) dating to over 2000 years ago are often found in the same deposits as arrow points (right) dating less than a 1000 years old at many Caddo sites. The Caddo usually established villages on higher terrain overlooking stream valleys. At such places, the landforms are stable, meaning that very little soil accumulation occurs and thus things of different age become mixed in the upper few inches. These examples are from the George C. Davis site in Cherokee County, Texas. TARL archives.
