I’ll post one more picture of a painted quartz stone. If you can’t tell that it’s painted red then it’s no need for me to post anymore.

Here is the other side of that possible blade. It was in my creek, clustered together with other tools right where an ancient path crosses. It’s still sharp after being in the water for a long time.

It also looks like a Columbian Mammoth on the other side.

I think it was definitely sharp enough to slice through a mammoth‘s flesh. Here is a better angle of blade.

Here is a core stone we found today also where they were cutting points off the end. Pretty neat piece.

Hey, I’m new to this site and I need some help identifying some points that me and my son are finding in my backyard in Athens Georgia. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
You’re rocking and rolling! Are these surface finds or underground? Hard to really imagine what truly lies beneath your feet. Hope you have a big backyard because I’m digging y’all’s discoveries! Please keep spitting your pics!

No I didn’t find that last one, its in the Smithsonian. I was just Seeing if they would say it was natural stone. They got OSL date 15,000 BP on that one

What we do is after it rains, we go around and look for something barely sticking up from the dirt. There is alot of erosion in my back yard where it slopes down to the creek. that blade I found yesterday was just barely sticking up and I dug it up with my stick.

I checked out a new spot today. Took my favorite stick (or staff). Watched the sun rise with my daughter and another daddy daughter couple. The company and lithography there was amazing. 3-4 different layers of dirt and time dropped from the edge of the cliff to the river. Several hefty corals; we left them there for the next time because we didn’t have a spade. Came home with a brick and some timeless family pics!

After rains is good picking!

The name of this site is North American Indian artifacts. Not pareidolia but the moderators allow this to continue I know if I don't like I can go somewhere else. Maybe I will

This is a pretty neat zoomorphic stone, which by the way, was common especially among the first paleo indians. Probably used to carve images of other animals on their tools.

You can't be serious...the only native artifact posted here was the one you took the image from elsewhere
