 Handbook of Texas Online:
Texas prehistory extends back at least 11,200 years and is witnessed by a variety of Indian cultural remains.
Much of Texas prehistory is subsumed within a long time span of hunting and gathering cultural patterns known collectively as the Archaic.
The period begins around 6000 B.C. and is notable for changes in the style of projectile points and tools, the distribution of site types, and the introduction of grinding implements and ground-stone ornaments, all reflecting a gradually increasing population that utilized abundant plant and animal resources of environments similar to those of modern times.

 Amazon.com: World Prehistory: A Brief Introduction (6th Edition): Books: Brian M. Fagan   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Utilising such diversity of disciplines, World Prehistory introduces to the reader, the developments of humankind- the origins, exodus and migration of man, food production and state formation- from the earliest times especially before written records were available.
As an introductory book to world prehistory, it lacks detailed study of other aspects of prehistoric mankind's developments especially in the fields of language, religion and a new, exciting and only recently explored field of psychological archaeology, dealing with the minds and thinking of the earliest humans.
However, after reading the book, I have obtained a general sense of the methods and theories that attempt to explain with the period of human history which was not recorded in writing.

In the past decade, Turner and other bioarchaeologists have put together a set of clear-cut criteria for distinguishing the marks of cannibalism from other kinds of scars.
But even as some anthropologists gave the ax to Krapina and other notorious cases, a new, more rigorous case for cannibalism in prehistory was emerging, starting in the American Southwest.
White's book "is my bible," agrees paleontologist Yolanda Fernandez-Jalvo of the Museum of Natural History in Madrid, who is analyzing bones that may be the oldest example of cannibalism in the fossil record--the remains of at least six individuals who died 800,000 years ago in an ancient cave at Atapuerca in northern Spain.
