Anybody got any they found?

Here are a few things I've found in the past couple months. I just started hunting. And I love it.
It's just a quick slide show. My cameras video sucks. The video is their to if you wish to see it. I hope to find many more. Got to get me some waders. I Found most of these in rivers and creeks. These suckers are hard to find. Takes time, lots of it.

I grew up in an area filled with huge Indian burial mounds, earthworks, etc. A friend of the family had collected lots of awesome artifacts, many now in museums, and he took me out "hunting" several times.

I accumulated a shoebox full of arrowheads, etc, but misplaced it when we moved. It is probably buried in an attic somewhere.

He had axe heads, hammer heads, knife blades, drill bits and all kinds of really neat things.

He was a farmer and after turning the soil, when the weather was nice, he'd just go walking through the fields and find things. It takes some practice to get good at spotting artifacts without turning over every little pebble. I find it rather similar to hunting for sharks teeth at the beach. But with hundreds of acres of freshly turned soil to walk, it was rare to come home empty handed.

This was all when I was 14-15. We moved to NC when I was 15 around 1985. Just a few years ago, I was walking from the pond at my folks' house, looked down, and saw a beautiful, complete arrow head just sitting in a rocky area at the base of a tree. It is my one and only NC find and brought back lots of fond memories. I left that arrow head at my mom's place and don't have a picture to post.

Nice artifacts TurboRacer, I love them all, the milky white quartz are very nice. I hope to find a whole quartz soon. I look in small rivers, creeks, on the gravel beds. And in any plowed fields I can locate and get permisson. Most of the farmers have gone to No Till, so it makes it a lot harder to find them on farm fields now days.

I know this is a bit off topic, but it made me laugh and I figured it make you all laugh as well < no disrespect to post here, just humor >

with that said.....

I totally pictured Cornelious when I read that question

Watch at YouTube

okay, the serious answer is... you don't actually know the true age, but you can make a educated guess based off stone type, size and shape, and where in the world you found it. weathering of the stone can also help.

here is a good read for those interested

Here is a couple I have. They were found by my parents near where I live. When I was young I helped my dad farm. I was always looking for artifacts but never found any myself.

A good place to look is the exposed soil from uprooted trees. A friend who hunts points gave me that tip years ago.

jgunpilot Yep good info. I heard that also. And on and between mature trees roots, as they grow up from sprouts they can bring arrowheads up with them so I've heard.

Indian Artifacts
When I was growing up..as a kid, my grandad belonged to the Tennessee Archaeologist Club. He would go to the "Indian burial grounds" in Jonesborough Tennessee. There the club members would purchase squares marked off by intersecting strings. The club member was allowed to dig his square and keep any artifacts found within his square.....just don't disturb the skeletal remains. Everything found was cataloged and photographed. At one time my grandad had one of the biggest Indian relic collections in Southwest Virginia. The area schools would bring classes to tour his collection. I don't think that kind of "digging" is allowed now. My grandad died in 1982 at the ripe old age of 83...yes he was born in 1899. He sold his collection way befor he died but kept some of the best pieces. I have a nice picture frame full of some very nice pieces found around our area. If I can..I'll dig it out and photograph it and try to post a pic.

Whoa, that frame is awesome! I've been looking to do something similar if I ever get enough arrowheads!!! Let me know if you ever want to sell that, I've been slowly collecting arrowheads to pass on to my new-born daughter one day.. Hoping to inspire her a bit!
