    Summer Finds

    I moved to the country in June, and I'm pretty sure there was a camp on my land. The blade in the middle top row was found in a creek that runs through the pasture in 2011. The rest was all found around a knoll in our hay field. There is lots of chips and flakes laying around. I hate
    no-till fields...

    wells, rock, larson1951 and 1 others like this.
    It’s called “HUNTING”, not “FINDING”. If it were called finding, I probably wouldn’t be nearly as entertained by staring at the ground while wandering aimlessly...

    Now I see them. That first one the blade is very nice, I like those flake blades.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.
    Best bug repellent I have ever used bugband.net check it out.

    Welcome aboard. Good stuff there. There are no fields at all where I am. You will get it figured out.

    I just have to be patient and wait for the heavy spring rains. My favorite piece is the pre-form. The bands look like a rainbow in sunlight. The bird stone is pretty neat too.

    I would focus a little more on the creek you mentioned.

    The lithic materials appear to have an eastern Nebr. look.

    Right you are, 11KBP. It's my families farm and I have walked that creek for years and that is all I have found. The field I just started looking at this summer. Way more stuff there. And I might be wrong, but I think that blade is older than the rest of the finds. Mostly Woodlands in the field, and that blade? Not so sure...

    It's legal to dig, but it's a pretty large area and Gramps might not be to happy if I dig up his hay. Good suggestion though.

    So if you are finding Woodland in the field where did you find that blade at? Ok I see. But the 2 look like the same material? The first 2?

    Second row, middle piece, what is that? It certainly is odd. Are you sure it is an artifact? I'm not implying that it isn't, just curious about it. Thanks for sharing!!
    Their were so many fewer questions when stars were still just the holes to heaven

    Rock, I think they are the same material. I found the blade on the far left in the field and the knife blade next to it in the creek. The creek runs within a quarter mile of the knoll. And N.C., I'm not100% sure. It looks like a birds head and I found it among all the other stuff. As to it's purpose, or wether there even is one, you got me.

    Bird head is the first thing that came to my mind. Don't run with that though. If you look through my posts' you'll see I'm notorious for using imagination. Nice finds!!
