Research was conducted back in the 1930’s, in the pre-Amistad days, to salvage prehistoric artifacts such as fiber sandals, baskets, twine nets, atlatls and even rabbit fur robes! The prehistoric people of the lower Pecos canyon lands were viewed as a static and primitive culture that lived here over 9,000 years ago. Now many of these shelters are submerged by the lake. However, you can still find artifacts and spectacular rock art on the walls of the rock shelters found in the region.
