Among the artifacts, two new and distinct projectile point types were defined from the collection at the La Jita site: the Sabinal point and the La Jita point. The extensive burned rock middens (prehistoric trash piles) at La Jita provide valuable avenues of exploration into the activities and lifeways of prehistoric occupants of Central Texas. Investigations of the La Jita site also suggest that the site was occupied repeatedly throughout its long history.
The 1967 excavation was a collaboration between the UT and Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas (then Girl Scouts of the San Antonio Area). Girl Scouts from all over the greater south Texas region assisted Dr. Hester with the work from June to July 1967. In 1989 and 1990, UT graduate student Jeffrey Heubner and Dr. Hester returned to the La Jita Site to focus primarily on the Late Prehistoric component.
The 1967 and 1989/90 excavations at the La Jita Site revealed a campsite spanning nearly the entire breadth of known human occupation of the Sabinal River canyonlands. While their investigations revealed critical information about the campsite, there remains several unanswered questions raised by the work.
