A Paleoamerican Feast

Did you know people were living in Bosque County more than 11,000 years ago?

Bosque Museum’s new exhibit on the Horn Shelter archeological site explores the remains of a burial site found in southeastern Bosque County. Based on what was found in the burial site and plants from the area, we can make an educated guess about what the dining room table would have looked like long ago.

A Paleoamerican kitchen wouldn’t be complete without a mano and metate – an archaic mortar and pestle! The Spanish word for hand is mano. See if you can find our mano on the table.

Also used in food preparation more than 11,000 years ago were flint tools, turtle shells, and clam shells.
