    Finding Native American Artifacts?

    Is it possible to find Native American artifacts with a metal detector? I live in heavy Native American territory and was wondering if there would be a special way to find old artifacts. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Native Americans used metal as well as stone and clay. Most metal objects were trade items that came from other countries. We find a lot of stuff at a local site that was made from copper kettles that the natives would cut up. Good luck.

    Plus always keep your eyes open and you might also find places to hand dig like if you find pottery pieces. Good luck. Tommy

    Relic & Nugget hunting, but I do it all
    I have found lead and miscellaneous metal pieces. Once found a broken file amongst stone bowls and arrow heads. My brother found the brass tip to an ink pen. This was inside of a tee pee ring. Did some Indian know how to write or was some white man visiting the camp? We will probably never know but it peaks our interest.
    One day at a local park a gal asked me "what was the most interesting thing that you have found". I told her a stone Indian bowl and some arrowheads. She asked me how do you get your detector to find things like that? I told her it's obvious that you don't but when you have your eyes to the ground you see things that you would normally miss. I hope that this gives you an idea of how it works out in the real world. --Jim

    Be very careful! You may collect, sell, or keep any artifacts found on PRIVATE lands but do so with artifacts found on public lands and you face SEVERE state and federal penalties. ╦╦C
    In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade. And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him out or cut him 'til he cried out, in his anger and his shame, "I am leaving . I am leaving" but the fighter still remains. The Boxer Simon and Garfunkle
