    CLOVIS! My Oldest Find EVER!

    Two days later and I'm still just as giddy as when I found this.

    Monday after work I decided to take a little drive down to Massachusetts to a colonial farm site along the Connecticut River where I have had some luck with my detector. After swinging the coil for a while in a lower field and only turing up a few flat buttons, I decided to try my luck in the upper field which had recently been turned over. The soil was really dry and the dust was awful. Disgruntled, I figured I would do one more pass hoping to dig at least one good keeper for the day. I always look down when I'm detecting, so its not uncommon for me to find the occasional arrowhead or flake, but what I saw laying on the ground shocked me. Staring up from the dusty earth was the most perfect point I had ever seen. I just about through my detector and shovel in excitement. I didn't even think to take an in-situ picture, I just picked it up and kept saying "oh my god, oh my god." In my hand I held my very first Paleo point, this wonderfully fluted Clovis! The point is 4 1/8" long, 1 1/2" wide. I can't wait to get back there and search for more!

    I submitted my banner vote in the North American artifacts section, thanks for posting it there. Clovis lithics are rare, especially in your part of the Country...well done! And as far as we know, Clovis is the oldest confirmed technology in North America....worthy of a banner in my opinion. And one more thing, that thing is damn near perfect...wow.

    Phenomenal find. I think Clovis sites are quite rare in Ma.

    Your find might be very significant.

    I know of 3 sites in Mass that have produced PaleoIndian lithics, I found this a little north of the Sugarloaf site.

    What a beautiful point and flute. How it survived for thousands of years in beyond me. It has my vote as well. Long time since we have seen an ancient point like that. It is like finding Spanish gold.

    Congrats on the holy grail of stone tools

    I was running the XP Deus in my top secret ancient stone tool mode (GM Power, not even ground balanced). Got to love surface finds!

    Very cool but I know next to nothing about stuff like this. How do you even begin to date something like that?
