I thought maybe some might want to see a HP seeing Dognose posted a Roller Style. The Hoof type was used in the Late Archaic to Early Woodland period. I really believe they found a rock that fit the shape they wanted and after years of use it eventually formed to the shape known as the Hoof Style. I know some guys older than myself that call this style (Pounders). It would of been a good tool for heavy duty processing and even pounding stakes. Excuse the leaves on it I have it in my flower bed. Just guessing but I’d say it weighs 15-20 lbs and measures 7 inches tall and 4 inches wide on the base. It has some finger dimples on it but those could of been from using it in the manufacture of a anvil type tool. It’s very dense I’m sure they were used for many tasks. I found this one in a creek near a big campsite where I found a Celt and other artifacts. I’ve only found 2 of this style of a pestle and the other is more hand sized.
