  1. Help with Arrowhead ID

    Is it translucent if you hold it up to a light?
  2. Wyoming find

    What is the cross section like?
  3. Did I find a kettle point??

    Just for clarity, the term pot metal is usually that lead/zinc low melting point metal that cheap cast toys were made from in the 1900's. (Cowboys, Soldiers, cars, cap guns, etc.) It'll make a great musket ball, but it's too soft to be of much use as a thin point. The metal trade pots were...

    I've never heard the term kettle point before either.

  13. Mission Period Pottery

    Great post, I learned quite a bit!
  14. The Hartley Site

    The article is a great read. A couple of really "sciency" paragraphs focused on the chemistry, but most of it is very readable.
  15. Nueva Cadiz

    Awesome stuff. I've found some of them near Cubagua, but that style is much more common in Peru than in Venezuela.
