    Got off the couch today

    Since Iíve been running my mouth lately, thought Iíd share with the community that Iím an honest enthusiast. Iíve held off on exploring this one due to the shear enormity of it, itís a monster, intimidating to say the least. This one has been hit hard in the past so the approach has to be thought out to avoid the over burden. Today was day one, many more to come for sure. I salute the diggers out there, the method takes itís toll on the body however, the result is oftentimes rewarding.

    Beautiful scraper, Paoli chert (Carter Cave). Rare to see a ďchip outĒ for the thumb. The maker/user was most likely left handed. Notice the edge work to the right of and below the indentation, that area is unusable with a right hand stroke. Ergonomics...lol

    Even though itís rectangular, the proper name for this one is a square knife, a very small example at that. Itís hard to see in this image but all four sides are worked. Black Sonora isnít common here, neither are square knives, thankfully the previous diggers missed it.

    Iíve got a spot like that one with several overhangs I need to get out again and check. Deer seasons over so donít have to worry about getting shot at

    Digging up relics one day at a time. Always looking for fellow detectorist to go out with and enjoy this hobby. Been swinging a coil going on 24 years now this year and loving every minute of it.

    Everyone is just one swing away from finding that one target to change your whole life

    Also I want to thank all my great friends on here for keeping me going through all these years. Couldn't do it without yall.

    Not a great image of this one. It was gifted to a first time digger. Bifurcated Kirk and completely exhausted. To the left you can see part of a really cool artifact! It was also gifted but I will be able to visit the new owner tomorrow for quality images.

    First thing you do in a shelter, walk it, crawl it, study it. It may reward you with an insitu, extremely rare but so worth it when it happens!

    The broke to whole ratio...brokes win today but it’s far from over! The flake pattern on the piece in the lower left corner is to die for! The artifacts are telling us that this shelter was used from the Archaic to Woodland time frames, a span of several thousand years. This shelter and it’s artifacts are a snapshot in time, it’s a thrill and an honor to see, touch and feel them. Private property with permission for all the thorns out there.

    Nice finds.

    I agree that is one large overhang area.

    Do you look on the locations in the image here the arrows are pointing to?
