    Arrow heads or spear heads... Age?

    Found these today diving! Does anyone know possibly how old they may be?

    VERY NICE! I would say they are both spear points or knife blades. I love the water worn look. I have a few that I found in a creek in Georgia several years ago. The sand polished them up nice.

    Both of those appear to have been reworked several times as they got dull and were sharpened again. The first one may be your best find but I would really like to see better pictures. May very well be a Clovis point which would make it potentially quite valuable if the condition is as good as it appears to be. Congrats on some nice points and HH.

    I'd say the first is a very nice example of a knife blade. The second some sort of corner notched projectile.

    Nice blade but.....not a clovis as I'd hoped. Still a very nice little reworked knife blade. If I were you, I would do some searching along the banks just up stream from where you found those. Could find the site where they are being washed out. That knife blade hasn't been washing around in gravel for very long. The edges appear to still be in very good condition. Normally when stone tools are washed out in creeks, the corners and edges get pretty beat up and dull the longer/farther they are washed by the water.

    Central Texas, we just had some major flooding and the water is finally cleared up so it has unearthed all of this untouched river bed... I've been loosely looking for this stuff for eight years and haven't found anything until this week... Great diving so far!

    Here's all of yesterday's finds, a couple of cool old bottles and forgot to mention a nice gold ring too found about 30 mins before the knife! I have a video of me finding the ring if anyone is interested in watching. Also a good video of me finding a GoPro... From a few days ago... The videos are under Lowell D in YouTube.
