    New to point hunting, is this an artifact?

    I recently moved to the Ozarks and rented a home for the first year over buying. My landlord owns about 1500 acres of forest behind my rental and I was given permission to roam free, with detector and in the creek beds. Found this today, I think it's a Native American artifact?

    It could possibly be a mortar, as in mortar and pestle but I'm not sure. They were used to crush and grind grains and nuts for food preparation.

    The first piece looks natural but it appears as though there are 2 worked pieces of the 5 from the pouch, though I see nothing resembling pottery. Regardless, it looks like you are onto a good area so it's just a matter of time until you find some points, good luck!

    The first thing is natural. Most other stuff is natural - the rocks with holes and such. What you're calling pottery, if it is pottery, is not indian pottery. Looks like you may have some debitage/waste flakes. The creek is nice looking... I can smell the wet rocks and plants just by looking at that photo!
