  1. Clay artifact with fingerprints? Found in Southern California

    Found here in Southern California, One hour away from LA. While metal detecting on a permission about year ago, I found this "item". Its one of a kind find for me and i happen to just dig it up while looking for metal. I have yet to get good enough info on it. It is a hollowed out like a...
  2. Im at a loss and need help

    I'm at a loss and need help I'm doing research on my property and area. I need help in noticing signs that native Americans have been in the area in the past. I found some maps and they could have been but I'm not 100% sure and I love history greatly so I wan't to learn more. These are the...
  3. Educate me, I’m curious…

    Went camping over the weekend and had the most unfortunate weather… that is unless you’re an amateur paleontologist! As wind, rain and lighting smashed the top of the mountain I was on, it exposed hundreds of these sea shell fossils. An interesting reminder of the dynamic shift that God put...
  4. ID help, please

    I found this interesting stone near the Sierra Ancha Wilderness in Arizona and would appreciate any help in identifying what it could be. In case ya'll didn't know, the Sierra Anchas are home to a ton of Indian ruins and although this wasn't found at any particular site, I had initially thought...
  5. Native treasures vs. Museum "research"

    Interesting article and why I cringe when I think about having to declare finds of antiquity. It all comes down to money... Arizona tribes: Law requiring return of relics hasn't met promise
  6. No Real Secret Here

    Last year I visited a known, but not very popular, Pueblo site. This area of the state is littered with ruins like these (all of which are accessible without permits because it is on government land) but it requires lots of 4 wheel driving and very strenuous hiking. Because they are so hard to...
  7. Possible Native American site???

    Alright good people of TreasureNet, I am in need of your help once again. Somewhere in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona is a very large hilltop (locals call it a mountain but it's not). At the base of that hilltop are petroglyphs, extremly common for this area. On the other side of the hill, I've...
  8. Pictish Artifact!!

    I believe what I have here is a pictish pebble made from quartz. There have been 19 similar stones found in the last 90 years and I believe all of them have been found in Europe. This one was found last year in the northeast United States. The picture with the multiple stones is from Painted...

  10. help please

    I was hoping someone could help me identify these. The only thing I have found even close to them are boiling stone . But these are not shaped correctly and larger. I found them in a creek bed within approx 5 feet from each other below a shelter. And feed back or ideas would be greatly...
  11. Awesome day! Help me out guys!

    This is my first post, so i'll try to keep everything short and sweet. I live in crawford co arkansas, and figured I'd go out on my grand parents land today and do a few sweeps as it's right off the Ozarks. Anyways while detecting a creek I came across this rock. Something I've never seen...
  12. My First and Only Native American Artifact

    Found this about ten years ago in a mole hill, a couple miles away from where the Cowlitz River spills into the Columbia River. It's extremely small, and as you can see it is an agate. I imagine it was probably used to hunt small game due to its small size. I don't have any idea on the age, and...
  13. Is this a Native American artifact?

    Hello all! I found this oddly shaped rock near a river by the flatirons. I was actually looking for a rock to shape into an axe head later this week and after picking this up it looked like the work was already done. it has a partially flattened top and bottom and at the wider end it gets...
  14. Possible Native american grave or something else??

    I have came a across some interesting rock formations while hiking through the woods. It is something I've never seen before I believe it is a burial of some sort. There is a stack of flat rocks almost tall enough to be a seat, and there are 2 different piles of rock about 3 feet from eachother...

    Native American ornament mode carved on both sides of one soapstone. For making beads and broaches from lead. About 3 inches square. May be between 300 and 350 years old. 1650s to 1750 possibly. Thanks for the look and info.
  16. Is this a Native American scraping tool?

    This item was found on my family's land that was previously home to Menominee tribe. I originally thought it may be a spear head but now am leaning towards it being a scraper of some sort, if its anything at all. It has an apparent groove in it which my thumb fits in perfectly. Black stone with...
  17. Native American Cave, Umpqua N.F. Somewhere up logging road from Swiftwater park?

    When I was hiking the Umpqua trail last year I met a couple who were camping near the Swiftwater park a few miles from Glide Oregon. The girl told me that her father was a lumber jack in these woods 50yrs ago. She gave me the directions for one ancient Indian Village in great detail. The other...
  18. Rare Niagara Falls Maid of the Mist postcard shows 15yr old Iroquois girl sacrifice

    Not many people know the story behind the Maid of the Mist, Niagara Falls and even fewer people make the connection to proof that Iroquoian tribes participated in ritual human sacrifice at the sacred waters site. But oral and written history contains more than one eye witness account of 15 yr...
  19. Indian Pottery - complete!

    The field in the back of my house was being dug up because of the beginning of a small sinkhole, and to my surprise the workers found a Native American Indian-made vase, fully intact! I was so utterly astounded that I rushed to make an account on this site to ask if anyone would be...

    I found what looks like it could have been an axe head or celt about a week ago near the Catawba River in North Carolina. I am pretty new to this and have no idea what I'm talking about lol. Any suggestions/advice? thanks, sosa961
