  1. Notched Ovate Bannerstone

    A cool style of bannerstone. They are shaped, the notch can be drilled out and then cut (the middle one), or in the case of the top and bottom examples just cut out. The bottom piece is picture in Lutz' book. Some restoration.
  2. One for Tundra Plugger

    Here is a ND piece that a well know archaeologist called a Goshen Knife. Depending on the cross section, I think yours could just be a much nicer version of this piece (chalk pocket and all.) (Apologies for the grubby hands, I was cleaning up the grill after dinner and didn't realize they...
  3. Organizing some paleo

    Unpacking and organizing some miscellaneous paleo. All broken or damaged except for a few. The vast majority were purchases, but have solid history on most. I just enjoy looking at old paleo and all of these probably cost less combined than any of them would cost individually if whole in G-10...
  4. Handful o'fluted bases

    Just a handful of Clovis-related bases. All from a single collection except one piece. Kentucky, by nature of the river drainages, is at a bit of a hypothetical cross roads of the Plains, Southeast, The Great Lakes and Northeast/Eastern Clovis styles. You see the range of named varieties...
  5. Cumberland Fragments

    Hard to get the pictures to show, but some Cumberland point fragments. Three from the same site, the others were isolated finds from Kentucky. (Purchased not found, I just wanted to get a couple of examples to look at the technology.)
  6. Quad/Beaverlake site in Kentucky

    A little grouping of Quad & Beaver Lake bits and pieces from Mercer County Kentucky. I suspect the complete points were "high graded" out of the collection, but still neat to handle some Central Kentucky examples. One of the many things I collect are broken paleo bases, neat to see some of the...
  7. Four well used Kentucky fluted points

    I really like the injection of paleo materials that Uniface has been posting, so I cracked open a couple of boxes of material. Here are four chunks of fluted points from Kentucky. I think three of them are Sonora and the other is Kentucky hornstone. The largest piece was beveled into...
  8. Ohio Lance forms- Paleo to Late Archaic

    There was an interesting post that brought up some of the Lanceolate forms from Ohio. Not as much scientific info in this thread, just some examples I have scattered around my collection. A hodgepodge of old and new pictures, eventually I’ll get the actual pieces sorted into some type of...
  9. Purchases and personal finds

    I'm normally not too excited about sharing purchases, but these fall into both personal finds and purchased relics. I collected them in the Caribbean 25+ years ago, sold them 15+ years ago, and bought them yesterday. (Islands are US territory in North America for the sticklers of if it belongs...
  10. Slate Lizards

    Slate Lizards or effigies are a group of stone 'problematicals' found in Ohio and surrounding states. Some of them were probably atlatl weights, some of them are similar to birdstones, some are like flattened plummets, some of them are finely made, and some of them are very crude. Aside from...
  11. My Loitwood Notched Points. Thanks Quito!

    Growing up in Indiana I was blessed with many things relic wise, but finding small true arrowheads was not one of those things (I have found 2 little Madison like points at my sites.) I’ve always loved them, the simplicity, the purity of design. Just efficient little tools made from high quality...
  12. Update to my Dakotas bone frame thanks to Quito

    Many years ago I fell in love with the awesome bone tools that the late, great Steve (Larson1951) posted from his Mandan site here on TreasureNet. A couple of years back I flew up to an auction in ND and got a start on my frame, and I also met Quito in person. I bought a lot of stuff at that...
  13. Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan Neolithic

    I have posted many of these earlier on, or on different forums, but since we have a cool new section on TreasureNet, I figured I'd add some pictures here. Most of these come from the Gobi Desert (Mongolia and Inner Mongolia in China), and a couple come from the beautiful country of Kazakhstan...
  14. Biconcave Gorget Marion County Ohio

    I occasionally add items to my slate collection when I get a chance. Here is a biconcave gorget from Marion County Ohio. These are pretty thick and hefty, and mostly drilled from one side. It’s very well documented. It has been in a bunch of collections over the years and is pictured as a...
  15. A couple or not old ones

    Here is a picture of some modern examples of lithic art created by some absolute masters of their craft. Unfortunately the only relics I have while over here in Asia.
  16. Old Pipe finds

    Following Steve’s lead of posting some actual artifacts,here are a couple of old pictures. Long, long ago in a far away place, I used to dig for a lotof relics. Here is a small cache of pipes that I dug. A couple of broken up pots in situ. If you’ve ever heard the phrase, Sack Pot,that is what...
  17. Some International Relics

    Discussions related to North American Indian artifacts. Canada/USA/Mexico. I've been slowly downloading my old photos from Photobucket since they went all fee crazy, and figured I'd post something here. These fall under the Mexico part of North America. These three artifacts in this post were...
  18. Clovis Technology & COA's

    I've posted this piece before, but here is a fun example of Clovis technology from Kentucky. This piece probably broke while being knapped. Since they were near the quarry and material was plentiful, this piece was probably just discarded. No COAs on these, not really needed. Some nice...
  19. Some Indiana paleo

    I busted out a couple of paleo points to take pictures for a different forum, and thought I'd put the pictures here as well. Neither are personal finds, but I can't resist old broken paleos from my home state. This first piece is the tip of what would have been a huge fluted point. Not...
  20. A couple of old Dovetails

    Here are some old dovetails from Whitley County Indiana, a mix of personal finds and old collector purchases. The one that is sideways is from the Addis collection, and later in the Earl Townsend collection. It was found "East of Wilson Lake", which is pretty close to land my 4th great grand...
