    Early Tennessee Tools

    These tools were found along the Duck river in Tn. back in the late 60's through early 70's. Many are part of the Dalton culture toolkit, some are earlier. Pictured are uniface knives, multipurpose tools, adzes, scrapers, hand knives, etc. Material is mostly Buffalo river chert and Ft. Payne. The largest tool in the first frame is 7 1/4 " for scale. Feel free to post your Tn. tools here.

    Re: Early Tennessee Tools

    I have been waiting to see your Duck River collection. It was worth the wait. So much good stuff has been written about that area it takes a pounding today. Anything from there is highly collectable and very desirable in Tennessee. I would say its in the upper top ten sites around here maybe, some say even in the south east. Nice collection thirty7.
    I will dig out some Tennessee tools to post and include one you will recognise.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Re: Early Tennessee Tools

    Here are some I could grab real quick and get a shot of. For the most part I consider many of these very early culture tools from Tennessee. I think you will recognise the center Duck River item. Dover,fort payne,camden chert and some hornstone.

    Here you go Jeff. It's a limace, aka slug shaped scraper. Part of the paleo man toolkit. The second piece(top left first frame) is probably a multipurpose tool, a scraper / knife combo.

    Re: Early Tennessee Tools

    Those are very nice examples.....................BIG too!
    What throws me for a loop........is the Ozarks Dalton tools are small and fine,like the Clovis and Folsom tools of the West.............1 to 2 inch Tool form............
    When I found Tools and Bifaces as big as those your showing.................BOOM one word Calf Creek in my neck of the woods...................
    I have never really studied Paleo tool forms...................just Dalton,but I do know that area your artifacts come from has Paleo sites...............
    But Paleo Tool forms are not something I know much about....................thanks for the close-ups,
