    Not sure it's the conclusion I would have come up with. If it's that old & rare, time to take it to an expert.

    Do you have a link or photo of the identical iron age relic you found online? Not trying to doubt your find but based on what I am seeing it would be hard to conclude that what you have is an iron age relic. But I'm pulling for you to be right I just need more information.

    If that's Iron Age, then I have an entire Iron Age civilization in my area. Now if I could only find a Bronze Age site nearby.....

    Good luck

    Haha, I was just thinking the same! I pull iron chunks from the ground constantly. Not to doubt anybody's finds, but it's easy to come up with a simple conclusion to every piece of junk pulled from the ground. Most of the time, it's just old junk...

    *scratches head* ....even bent the wrong way. Unless the other end was used and it's what caused that object to break up like that. Makes me wonder why someone would want to take a hammer to an artifact like that in the first place. (If that's what it is) If i'm translating correctly, I would say that he was mining for gold with that hammer and found the iron after hitting the surrounding rock?

    I found a couple of nails the other day, but they were bronze, so I tossed them.
