Discovery and investigation of the Wheeler site near Carrollton, Dallas County, Texas, has led to the tentative identification of a 3,500-year-old, "Little Pluvial" age, non-pottery culture in north Texas; it seemingly is a phase of a larger complex which at one time occupied the upper reaches of the Trinity River drainage and the middle area of the Brazos River, and may possibly demonstrate relationships with the "Desert Cultures" of California-Lower California to the west, vestiges of a late contact with remnants of the old Plainview-type culture, and with the eastern Archaic from the Mississippi Valley.
