    Wow, blazerdog, looks like you found a nut pounding site. A lot of smashing rocks. Hey, the obsidian. You may have found the equivalent of what metal detectorists call a coin spill. That many obsidian preforms, no finished product? The native lost or misplaced his or her bag of special preforms, thousands of years ago, and you found it! Speculation on my part. Thanks for sharing, and yeah, you could use some help. It may be an important site needing proper excavation, no offense intended.

    no offense taken. here is the rest of the story. since I found the first pieces in early January, spent about seven days there. here is where I am at. obsidian points and tools 500+ .stone points and tools 200+ . small stone tools 400+ . large stone tools 200+. small rock art 100+ . medium rock art ( 1 to 3 lbs ) 125+ . large rock art over 3 lbs 70+. lot of owls and seven wooly mammoths. pieces that have been worked but I don't have a clue 200+. so believe me, no offense taken. I think this is paleo, just from what I've seen on the net. don't really know for sure.

    no positive IDs. this is basically the first time I've gone public with it.. the property is on 19 acres of family owned land. the top ten acres are rented . The bottom ten where the site is. Is only about 60 yards from the highway, with easy access. most of the time nobody is there. its in lake county ca. No way to put it nicely, there is a lot of people that would strip the place bare. They have even stolen artifacts sticking out of the ground at the entrance of the local parks. I shudder to think what would happen if word got out to the locals.

    Welcome to Tnet.

    Looks like you have a mix of hand worked pieces & natural rocks.
