While researching data for a trip we came across a book called “The Way of the Hunters” by Raoul Dixon. The book contained photos of sites that we were familiar with, as well as one that was not known to us. Raoul called this site, the Knob Hill Quarry Site and it consisted of sleeping circles, a large shelter and lots of artifacts, which Raoul collected.
Recently we tried to locate the quarry site, which we thought was in the Las Vegas Range (Mts). Once in the field we used some of the photos from his book to try and place ourselves in the right search area. The photo idea didn’t work as well as we thought it would, but we felt certain that we were in the general area. The problem was we could not pin down the exact locations or angles of his original photographs.
