Hi! I'm new here....

Hi!

Personally, I live just N. of Dallas but my in-laws live near Canyon Lake. This past summer my husband & I have been fidning Indian artifacts on my in-laws property & now we're hooked! I try to visit every 3 months & make an effort to go hiking around the property when I'm there. There is a dry creek bed where I have been finding a majority of the items.

I'm new at digging & hope to learn more.

p.s. I know this might be off topic here but wondering if yall believe in spirits. I've had acouple experiences where I felt uncomfortable removing artifacts from the earth. And have found one tree where there were small bones buried around the tree pointing North, South, East & West. I dared not remove those.

Here is a find from Kelly - Maybe yall can help?

Hello kelly

Thought that I would post your find and see what others think.. Maybe a tool.. Maybe a knife of some sort.. Maybe a act of nature.. Lets see what everyone thinks



Anybody want to take a stab at this ?

I don't want to be a pooper, but I think its just a large flake.. Anyone for a tool in mind??

Re: Hi! I'm new here....

Michelle,

Thanks for posting the picture.

I'll sortof describe what it's like. The sides are smooth yet bumpy like someone was trying to carve into it. The left side is very sharp & I can wrap my hand around it as if it's meant to be held. The right side is about an inch wide.

It could be a freak of nature but it's a very interesting item.

Re: Hi! I'm new here....

WEll, if its in the middle of no where, someone or something HAD to break it off a larger chunk to either make a tool or use a part of the flint for something...

Its REALLY hard to break that stuff

Someone took a good wack at it to get that out of a larger one!

Re: Hi! I'm new here....

Looks to me like part of a core which I consider artifact. Oh and welcome Kelly!

Re: Hi! I'm new here....

Looks like it could be the ancient equivalent of a scythe (sp?.) They used them to cut grass, vegetation, etc.
