I guess this would be part 3 to my adventures in the creek. This was the third weekend in a row digging in the creek bottom. In case you're wondering Hal, I am digging down to bedrock. Of course, that is not too hard since I only have to go down about 2-1/2 feet. Again any comments on the ID of points is welcome. I orginally thought the large point was a perd, but upon closer inspection, I'm wondering if maybe it's an Austin point due the beveling on the left side of each face.
I have been unable to identify the narrow point in the center row on the far left. The closet thing I can think of is that it is a Dalton "type". That point did not come out of the creek but from below a midden in the "pink dirt" on the outter edge. The notch on the side appears to be intentional and not broken.
The piece of bone looks as if it may have been used as a shaft scraper. Just a guess though. The white colored blade base is very nice and would have been good looking little blade, too bad it wasn't complete.
Good report, deep is good
Point in hand, only you can determine if an Austin type point.
Mystery pt, center left. If it was mine I would call a Perd that had been used as a knife. The notch you note is the original outline, had the same on the other side, now resharpened off. To see close to the original point... Trace around the point on a piece of paper ....flip the point over and trace again.
That bone does have a smoothed look to it. Maybe for handling hot cooking pot handles
There's another test of flint photography. Not easy. I suggest digging up more finds and try other lighting
