A flood control project in Houston, Texas has uncovered a Native American encampment dating back to 500 A.D.

In 500 A.D., perhaps even earlier, this was an Indian encampment here. Bits of pottery reveal it was made from the sand and soil of Cypress Creek, the dart tips were used to hunt the game that roamed here.

“They were very sophisticated about their environment. They knew that if they returned here every few years, they would find a good berry crop,” said Moore.
