    Winter hunt

    Artifacts in Maine are hard to come by this time of year.Got out last week for a few hours.Open ground was limited.Sometimes when you are restricted to smaller amounts of ground you become more thorough..Click image for larger version.

    Nice finds , looks cold ... tough conditions to hunt Id say you did good
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    Cool stuff. I've knapped some Mt. Kineo ryholite, interesting stuff! Stupid question --and I've actually tried to google it and didn't find an answer-- is it pronounced like kin-ee-oh or kah-nay-oh, or something else?

    Thanks, that was how I was pronouncing it but someone here in Virginia recently told me it was the other way. I posted some Mt. Kineo work in the section on modern knapping.
