    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    If it also happens to be of historical significance and is recognized as such...yes they can.

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    It all boils down to who is PO'd and how much money they have or how disgruntled they are regarding the situation.

    Most people are fine if there is mutual respect. But when people go all treasure crazy, that's where the problems start.

    If everyone respects each other's property and there is permission, all is golden.

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    I am afraid that the point has been "missed" !
    "A", or! "The" Govt can not pass a law(s) that tells you what you can or can't do on your PRIVATE PROPERTY! *
    That happens to be a basic concept on OUR! Constitional Right!
    A personal "like or dislike"....ie: respect for
    Morality....
    AND! That nasty word being "PC" !
    Has nothing to do with the issue !
    AND ! We had better ALL "Pray" that it stays that WAY!

    I have informed FEMA of JUST! That fact !
    In a Public Meeting ( 300 people present) and reported by "The Corpus Christi Caller Times" (Our Local Newspaper)

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    Are we talking about the same government?

    The one I know has George W. Bush vetoing everything that comes to his desk that has to do with the war unless it's an increase of spending. He thinks since he is "commander in chief" he gets to do what he wants. Meanwhile the system of checks and balances went out the window.

    You can say constitution this and rights that but we the people seem to understand what is supposed to be granted to us under our bill of rights better than those we elect to serve us.

    It is about ego and power and still boils down to who has more money and better lawyers.

    Now how in the world did this topic run amok?

    Let's just agree to disagree and I'll reiterate my initial point which was please respect things which are historically significant. We are the caretakers of the past so there will be a future.

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    Yoohoooo!
    OH, Captbill!
    Does the phrase "eminent domain" ring a bell? (My hillbilly sense of humor is coming to the forefront!)

    The Gov. will do with your land what it wants! It's a shame, but that's the truth! Some of the same holds true in archaeology. Find a burial mound on your property and dig into it....if you're caught...watch the holy horrors of gov. abound! Burials are a different matter altogether!

    Does "The Second Amendment" ring a bell!
    And!
    I can guarantee you that most people have no idea of why it was so important that it be included!
    And!
    No!
    It was NOT! for hunting or for your personal protection!
    Hint!
    It has something to do with the Federal Govt.

    Hint! I think we hijacked this thread long enough with a political debate.

    My apologies to treasure hunter for the way the thread turned.

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    Back to the original question.Look above ground around the mounds. You dont have to dig. and if it is private land and the owner is agreeable then who knows what you will find. Example. Aprox 150 yards from a big mound. Above ground in the roots of a big tree. Legal and going to a local museum for display. Found this last weekend. You don't hide things like this, you display them to see how people once lived. It is history.

    Re: Does anyone here have experience with burial mounds?

    Not to take away from your "Find" !
    And!
    It is a good "find" !
    But!
    These ancient grinding stones are fairly common out in the west!
    Most rural homes have them in their front yards! (Ornamental)

    In Fact, in Mexico, they are still in use!

    That's a known fact. I have seen more grinding stones than I have taken the time to count.. We are not talking about common or rare, we are talking about the ability to find items on or above ground , around mounds. I could care less about its common-ness. It's just an example of WHAT CAN BE FOUND WITH OUT DIGGING INTO MOUNDS.

    Out here in the far west,
    We don't have "Mounds" per se!
    We have cliff dwellings & Indian ruins (old towns or as in the Gild Bend area, A "City"!)
    Yep!
    A "City", complete with irrigation canals, that are still in use today.
    They, the canals, run for hundred mile or so!

    I know, I have had extensive private tours of a number of them. I remember back in the 1950's when I saw my first Cliff Dwelling I was in total awe. I went to the library and read every book I could find on them. Few people can imagine the scope of their civilization's.

    Ahhhh.... Captain Bill.... you of all people should know that the land is NEVER yours. The government merely gives you the privilage of seeing after your deeded chunk.

    Think of it this way: What happens if you don't pay your rent... errrr.... taxes? They kick you off the land. What happens if the Government decides that they "need" your land for a new Army base? They take it. What happens if they decide to put an Interstate highway through your land? You have land on both sides of the highway.

    Get my point?
