    Re: need help for ID on these american native artifacts

    In the first picture the two round items on the bottom are called Discoidals and were used for games. These are usually associated with the Ft Ancient/Mississippian Culture which was from roughly around 1000 to 1650 AD. The elbow shaped piece appears to just be a rock and the other piece might be a Celt. Does it have a sharpened bit on it like an Axe?

    The second pictures shows typical NC arrowheads, made from Rhyolite and Quartz. As for age or culture, (you can't really distinguish Tribes), the second from the left in the top row is probably Archaic which is roughly 8000 to 500 BC. The others look to be more Woodland which is roughly 800 BC to 1200 AD.

    The third picture shows 2 Hammerstones which were used by all cultures so the only way to get a timeline on them is to know what age the site was they came from.

    The last few pictures, other then the one with the Arrowheads, all look like Fossils and Geodes.

    Hope this helps you out.

    I think Steve gave your stuff a solid assessment and I agree with what he said. Welcome to tnet catbird.

    Second point from the left looks like a Brewerton side notched. The milky Quartz point is a Morrow Mountain. Both Middle Archaic. 7 & 8 top row are Morrow Mountains too..The rest is difficult to tell with bases missin. All Rhyolite, except the Milky white Quartz.

    Hope this helps.
