    Can anyone comment on the item that has the cortex attached? Is that a point? tool? Practice? debitage?

    I've got a bunch more stuff I'd like to post with questions but don't want stuff to get buried.

    Also, can anyone comment on what material these pieces are? I'm fairly certain it is chert, I have found what I believe to be chert on the property but it isn't workable. I'm wondering if it was heated?

    Looks like the base of an Adena/Gary/Dickson/loftin type point, Im not sure I see the cortex but if so they must have been using a small cobble or an early removal flake to make it. The point was completed before the last of the cortex was removed.

    The second picture in the post, if you zoom in and look to the left, you can see what may not be the cortex but is some sort of bands that are not the same as the rest of the white stone. I can't imagine that it would be easy to work which had me wondering if the piece started out at that length and was not broken after the fact.

    Anyway, rocks like these.. Are these lines from plows or native americans? Are the little dimples natural or man-made?

    Lastly, the neighbors found this guy about 600yards from my hill and would appreciate any input or comments.

    This is my favorite find to date. Found within 10ft of where we've found the 2 complete and probably 5 partial points, very pointy, I've been calling them Spitzers.

    This is a traded knappable stone that has had flakes removed, correct?

    [Edit] my son keeps asking me "did Indians use this?" to every rock he's picked up on our hill. He'll make me look through his collection to make sure I didn't miss anything. I've been occasionally getting very excited about a rock and then making up an absurd use for it. He thinks it's hilarious. He once found a "poop rock" that the Indians used for makeshift toilet paper (joke). Anyway, last night he is telling everyone that he found a native American belly scratcher and is walking around rubbing this big rock on his stomach. I'm still cracking up.
