    Very nice finds. Those points will be a great display/conversation piece for your collection.

    He took it in stride!....he ended up digging a couple of "blanks" about three feet away. I'm sure we'll all be back out there....

    He had actually dug one like one of the smaller ones a while back, while digging another target....he is now kicking himself for not digging up the whole spot back then!

    He is a great guy though! Not selfish at all, and he donates his finds to museums all the time.

    from a known time period / culture , it may be the single best dicovery of it's kind in your area ever , as such, please carefully document
    the find precisely - this is a museum level find ! Congrats !!!! Argentium .
    First of all congrats on the rare cache of points -- they are beautiful even to the untrained eye! I agree with Argentium's post in that the pros have the means and resources (money and equipment as well as time) to properly document (for posterity) and excavate the site if warranted to extract as much information as possible about the site and culture responsible for the points. Otherwise there's the danger of this being lost forever which would indeed be a shame. I think more cooperation between detectorists and "archies/anthropology folks" is a good thing. I hope you'll contact them regarding this find and congrats again! Regards, Erik

    I agree.....It's too bad that most of them refuse to cooperate with hobbyists, and amature historians/collectors.

    The problem in Florida is...when you tell them about a site...there is a REAL good chance, that all they will do is make it "off limits", but never bother to excavate it. Then the site will get ravaged by illegal digging...and nothing will be accomplished. It's happened time and again. Some possibly very important sites will never be explored, unless they are paid to do it....and believe me....the SECOND the money runs out...it will look like they were abducted by aliens!

    This site is on private property anyway, and I'm sure the landowner doesn't want any "officials" in there, or any attention. It has also been altered so much, that the whole trench digging and dating process will be useless.

    We had an "Isolated Finds Program" in Florida for finds on public (HA!) lands, and river finds.....It required reporting of the finds, with a picture, and approximate location, plus gave the state at least a chance of buying an important find, or excavating an important site. "They" did away with it. Supposedly because it was "too expensive". I wonder how much it cost a year for some grad student to catalog the occasional email, or letter that made it's way to the powers that be? The same system works just fine for fossils......makes you wonder what the real reason for doing away with it was? I guess they think that a guy fishing, or kyaking, or whatever that sees a nice point in the water will just say..."oh that's nice" and paddle away now.....

    I really wish it was different here...but it's going to take some "new faces" in those positions to bring common sense back into the mix.

    You are absolutely right Jon, The archies in the USA and in Canada could take some lessons on the way the amateurs and pros work together in the UK.
