    Yazoo County., MS relics

    I found these within the past year just outside of Yazoo City, MS. Typical rock for this area of MS. You need to go a little further north towards the TN / AL border to get to the pretty stuff.

    The square scrapper to the right of the silver dollar is the first square scrapper I've seen and one of my favorites. Another cool stone is the scrapper / knife directly under the dollar. You can see the transformation of a stone to a tool because they left a portion of the stone unworked. Fits your hand perfectly. Probably a Mississippian site, pottery shards everywhere. I don't pick it up unless it has a pattern on it.

    Nice pieces. I'd say your site has a late archaic component as well.

    Lots of people know about this site. The land owner lets everyone on it. The place really gets hammered but is still producing.

    Here's a frame of broken points from the same area. All of this was found walking plowed fields after a rain within a 4 acre area over 5 or 6 hunts. The large jar of pottery shards, scrappers and flint above my bookcase came from the same field. I stopped picking up pottery after the second trip unless it's a large piece or has a pattern on it.
