    Tiny dart points

    Here are three little dart points (For the lack of a better term) that I found a couple of years ago. They will each easily fit on a nickel. The field had just been turned. I was worried about stepping into an air pocket and turning my ankle. I stepped over from one "hill" to another and saw one of the black ones right beside my foot. I picked it up and took about five steps and found the other black one. I found the triangle point a while later. The owner looked at them and said "How in the world did you see those?" He said that he couldn't have found those on his front porch, much less the newly turned field. I told him that I was just very lucky that day.

    He laughs and tells everybody that I remind him of a beagle hound trying to find a rabbit when I walk up and down the tobacco rows.

    Thanks for looking!

    Those are nice. I find tiny ones mainly because I pick up almost every chip and flake I see. Every once in a while I find an arrowhead by doing this. Here's two that have on my computer that are about dime-sized.

    Nice Ft. Ancient points. Have you found a lot of triangles on that site? Pottery? Bone?

    Nice - true arrowheads. Most of what people call arrowheads are actually knives and atl-atl points...not these!

    Re: Tiny dart points

    What do you mean when you say dart points? I always thought of that term as atl-atl points when used with a socketed spear (and the front portion that comes away with the point looks like a dart) but sometimes I wonder if that is what others mean when they use the term-

    Thanks for posting TreasureTales! These were found in an area that did not have any creeks or rivers nearby, but there are a lot of springs around there.

    Good luck!

    Hey Chuck! The small triangle points are kinda rare on this site. I have yet to find any pottery. I have a site within 5 minutes of my house that is a Ft. Ancient site. I find a lot of triangle points (Ft. Ancient points) on that site. The field is right next to a big creek.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the post Cannonman! I am hoping to get back on my Ft. Ancient site in a couple of weeks. They finally plowed it after a 4 year halt. I can't wait!

    Good luck!

    Hey Cannonman. I've always heard of the tiny points referred to as "dart points" in this area. Most everyone you talk to around my area refer to them as such. That's why I said "For the lack of a better term" in my original post as I wasn't sure that the term was the correct one to use even though most everybody calls them that in my area. I guess it is just like when you hear someone call a point a "bird point" even though it wasn't necessarily used to hunt birds. The Ft. Ancient and other triangle points like Madison, Hamilton, etc. are just like you said earlier, "True arrow points". I know I love finding them!

    Thanks for your input! Good question to bring up.

    Brian
