I hit my site in Garrison Kentucky and did fairly well. I found a nice Stone Hoe, a couple of Points, some Flint Celts, and lots of Tools.

All in one day? You’re killing it out there! I especially like that dark little baby notched point.

That’s a great haul for one day , that hoe is really nice don’t see many of those what’s it made from ?

We call it Ironstone. I think it's actually called Waverly Sandstone. It's a hard thin crust layer in our area. You can actually see the line in some of the road cuts. This site has given up several really nice examples, two of which I gave to the farmer, and probably 50+ broken pieces. They were farming a lot here and I suspect the Flake Tools I find here were used processing the crops.

Good haul. Good info on the hoes. They made them put something similar in northern Indiana, I’ve always called it Ironstone as well.

I am rarely envious of Illinois, but those giant, polished Millcreek hoes are pretty amazing.
