    You might want to post this in the "Native American Artifacts" thread. It is further down on the main page. Many knowledgeable people there will give you good advice. Best of luck with your collection.

    If you've searched the internet and can't find the pieces you have then you most likely have what are commonly called geo-facts, in other words.....plain ole rocks.

    I see several artifacts in the photo. As fyrffytr said, under the forum page, scroll down to the “ North American Indian Arifacts” forum and post them there. You should take photos of a few items at a time, and use a neutral background.

    Kindest regards,

    See if an area college has an anthropology/archaeology dept. and reach out to them. Unfortunately with lithics, more often than not they need to be seen in person and held to classify them or determine they are nothing.

    These guys are right...see if there's anyone really knowledgeable close to you that can see your stuff in person.

    I see a few in there that look good...A solid background, like Red or a Bright Royal Blue that show details helps a lot along with spacing in a group shot or just do one at a time.

    In the meantime you might want to check Texas artifacts sites online where you can compare the photos to your collection.... Or whatever state they were found in.

    Good Luck!

    I leave them. They have no value whatsoever to me. The only one I almost brought home was a matate that had been broken to release the owners spirit. That touched me.

    Interesting. What culture is that from? Most grinding basins and grinding stones were buried complete with the owners in the Plains Village farmer culture. They didn't believe it held the owner's spirit. Now the southwestern peoples did have a tradition of 'killing' certain items and including them in burial. I don't know if that was to release the owner's spirit, though.
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    I also see several items although some are crudely made and one wonders if they were made by Native Americans or some folks trying to produce imitations. Better pics of each item as well as pics of both sides and/or from different angles might help with identification.
