Martha Hemphill, state-employed archeologist at the "dig" along Texas Highway 9 in Live Oak County, shows (in this undated photo) a hollowed place in the sandstone slab once used by nomadic Indians to grind grain. The "metate," as this artifact is referred to, was used to cover its owner's body at burial. Inset shows cache of scrapers and flint rocks buried woth prehistoric Indian - note dental remains. Teeth uncovered from the site are primary objects of research efforts to determine age and sex of the ancient nomads.
