    show us how the axe and handle fit together and tell us how it would have been lashed. also give us close ups of the worked areas on the axe, especially any groves you see. the handle also, show us the wear patterns on the wood. remember a stone axe needs to be sturdy and heavy to pound in a way that modern hatchets do using a much sharper edge.

    As far as the wooden "axe handle", context would help tremendously. Wood disentegrates very quickly unless exposed to certain preservative elements or soils. Protected arid climates can also preserve wood for thousands of years.
    It would also help to know about the types and proliferation of rocks in your area.
    If you re-read your initial post, your presentation of your artifacts doesn't offer much in the way of contextual information. Some of the people on this site have a great deal knowledge, others are here to learn, while still others sometimes seem to be jealous trolls who deny that everything is authentic. My advice is to use a little common sense when posting, especially when things are not immediately and obviously apparent. We don't know where you are or anything about your site or area, and have no idea about the local prehistory. Addressing those issues would help greatly when asking for advice or just sharing your finds.
    If I've said it once I've said it a thousand times: Context is everything.

    Axe and wood handle

    I understand context is everything. Iím not searching creek beds or trying to pass off river cobbles. This is all found buried in this fossiliferous marine deposit that is not supposed to exist in my state. I have two Mosasaurus jaw bones, one was found with the coconuts. The jaw bones has been identified by four experts. Cretaceous fossils are not supposed to exist in Ohio, but I have an awful lot and everything here is found in a small 3 acre area.
    These were found together a few inches apart. Both rocks at the notched end.

    This red ochre piece has been ground on both sides to form a sharp edge. There are worn grooves from cordage that are visible in the photo.

    The oxide layer on the exterior in the first photo has cordage underneath. I found this bottom side up at the notched end of the wood handle. The sediment here is air tight and soft until exposed to air. Itís not dirt, itís something else and I donít know what it is. I have not prepped anything.

    You found petrified coconuts in Ohio? You should set up an appointment to meet with geologists and archaeologists at OU or OSU, whichever is closer. Seriously. Please let us know how it goes.

    Kindest regards,

    So the only thing that experts verified is the jaw bone.

    Got pics of that.

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    The lower section of this jaw is missing. There is one exposed tooth and another that is covered by the fossilized mud on the exterior. This was identified by multiple experts from all over the country and one from the UK.

    Sorry, I just see rocks & old wood. Nothing looks to be man made. Again, have the coconuts become stone or are they still viable coconut shells? They may not be that old. They could have been buried there by somone. Weird stuff has been found buired where it normally isn't found. The jaw bone is pretty neat.

    This side has a thick oxide layer covering a small amount of cordage.
