  1. Some spring & summer finds

    Really enjoy those pictures of the moments and conditions they were found in. Sorry, but I forgot your hunting region? It was so hot this summer in my area, can’t say that I got out at all.
  2. Did I find a kettle point??

    I don’t know if that is a kettle point, but it could be. These are associated with the Post-Contact transitional end to the Stone Age. The brass kettle in those days could be likened to our modern day plastic bucket. Good article below...
  3. grooved egg

    If my memory serves, Charl posted a photo of a boat weight that he found along the North River on the East Coast of MA. It had quite a resemblance. If it is a boat weight, it’s an extremely rare find.
  4. Full groove axe head

    Congratulations on a wonderful find!
  5. Full groove axe head

    Congrats! Real nice find!
  6. Possible broken point?

    Good pictures! So, based on the new photos, I think I see to the very left of that broke section -a notched ear and basal-thinning just before the break. That one little corner resembles the ear and basal detail of a type called Brewerton Eared Notched (supported by width and flat appearance)...
  7. Possible broken point?

    Definitely a ‘worked’ piece of dark Rhyolite. I’d like to see more of broken end -specifically that corner that appears to be notched. Just curious.
  8. Understanding US Archaeology

    Except for those who find an unrepresented monkey tooth in a tiger cave and exclaim, “Eureka! a new human relative!”
  9. Paleo-Archaic point and natural stone

    Agreed. I emphasize ‘resemble’.
  10. Pa. Jasper- Bottom Center my best find so far for 2022.

    Thanks for posting this PA frame. I’m thankful to see a quality representation of personal finds from a bordering region. From my view (Northeast Coast), There are a good number of points in that case that are instantly familiar types -some with slight variation of style and material (oh...
  11. Paleo-Archaic point and natural stone

    Ok, your going to make me go through my lithic material boxes. But I don’t have high hopes of finding anything that matches that unusual material. I will note here that much of the material that I have had the opportunity to study is from the coast. The ocean can definitely change the physical...
  12. Need help identifying point type.

    Extra Large Kidney Stone. No joke! I mean it. They get colored that way on the way out.
  13. Obsidian finds

    Love that obsidian and the Elko. That’s such a recognizable type in that material. (Reference books and websites) Congrats on those finds!
  14. Apple Hill

    I always like to see the display of hard-earned points (one student to another) personally arranged in a frame. It’s a rare chance to see a collection reflecting a lifetime of hunting in a specific region. But yours adds a unique bonus of showing the widest range of time periods I think I’ve...
  15. Scraper help

    Really cool. Don’t know what you’d call it.
  16. Cape Cod arrowhead

    Additional info: Levanna Traingles are named after the Levanna site in Cayuga County, NY (Richie 1928). They date between 1200-1000 BP. Around 1000 years ago, they became the dominant Arrow Point. The very largest ones (like your example) are believed to have been mounted to Harpoons. About 600...
  17. Thoughts on CT point?

    Found it. Used up and missing an ear. I do think this little triangle is made of the same Delaware River - Black Chert.
  18. Cape Cod arrowhead

    The Atlantic Ocean is brutal. Sometimes it’s hard to see the workmanship. Your Large Levanna Triangle is missing an Ear and a good portion of the Tip. That’s a very nice find. You are also correct regarding the local lithic material it is made from. Here are a couple photos from my collection...
  19. Traveling Lithics

    Here are good examples from A New England Typology of Native American Artifacts. I can’t show these with multiple lighting angles to highlight the workmanship (like I did with the one I posted) Is there something specific that gave you a red flag?
  20. Traveling Lithics

    My heart did stop! Momentarily. It was a strange find. About 25 years ago. I really wasn’t hunting at all. I had tried to find arrowheads in the past. I took long walks in the woods and always came home empty-handed. But, this day I was at work, driving a lawn care truck, treating lawns all...
