Interestingly the discovery of a 30,000 yo Sonic Route 44 cup and a kids meal toy at Lagoa Santa, Brazil strongly points to migration of the South American indigenous peoples through Texas.

Great Texas history site. I've lived in this area most of my life, but I hadn't heard about Morhiss Mound until now. Oh, and the first Texas bad man was named "Dinosaur Dan."
