THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
You can see the inclusion on the left side, possible cause of the break. Real colorful flint, that's the beauty of digging in the hill country. More colors then anywhere else.
That does have good fluting on it Idaho. Wonder if the flute was knapped in before the point ever took shape?
Red sky at night, diggers delight
"insitu" even on a screen really brings the fun of finding right to the home audience.
Ida, long as your in the market for a new camera, how about looking into a 3D model so we can 'TOUCH' your upcoming finds too
And nice job on the Bell closeup in getting it lined up with the beer can stain on the table to show where the missing section was. !
Tks for the show, good effort
this site is on its last leg to no one posting like a few yrs ago . yall ran off the local diggers and look at the crapy digfest yall did last year .
we went to a dig with lunker brad and had a blast at rolands that guy was a real outdoorsmen .
looks like this site is down to about 6 guys that post lmao .
That was sure luck to find the core to the point. I'm always looking for matching flakes when we find any artifact, whole or broke. Figure if it was being knapped out in an area, there'd be the flakes with it. I'll keep looking.
Nice finds, looks like a successful dig to me! I sure want a Kerrville knife in my collection. Thanks for the beautiful sunset shot as well. As to the agitators, probably best to just ignore them, and hopefully they'll crawl back under their rocks.
Heres my Sunday half day finds, just making it in, took sometime to enjoy the river and country there. Enjoyed meeting Idahoe,Tom and Cyrus.
Tried finding this one in book with no luck, it seems like I have seen them in there before? Ok,maybe Pipe Creek.
This comanche perd sure would have been a killer!
Not real sure on this one, looks old!
Yes the penny was a monetary find!
Had a good time and looking forwards to going back, I think the site will get better as the dig gets closer to the river!jmho
Excellent posting Sandman ! It was my pleasure meeting you. And I am sure we will again. I am truly amazed at the age of the points coming out. We have Paleo, post paleo and up from there. As the camp is dug to the river I am positive it will only get better. And I am sure that Andice will make it to the tables. I am hopeful the negative posters will just go away. When we get together again lets make a weekend out of it and have the pit roasting while we dig. You have some good stuff for a half day. Thank you for sharing.
Good show Sandy
Checkout the old posting by the king of Pipe Creeks ( Tucker )..The description is also listed in the Hester book. Must be an oversight that it's not in the OverS.
Old looks good, we'd like to hear what the experts call it.
That bottom pic is the kind I like where extreme age artifacts are close together,found at the same site...
COIN..........19?? ( 62 ? )
PIPE CREEK....1000 AD
How deep was the coin ? ... Tee Hee
Idahoe, Great posts & pictures of the dig, thanks for posting. Is TJ & Cyrus digging on just weekends or any day they get enough people there? Thanks, John
I believe for now it's weekends. You need to call Cyrus. What a great guy. The screens are always full of dirt to screen .. We hit the Bell dirt last time and it will get better as they move to the river. I am amazed at the dates of the finds. Bell-Andice to Woodland. Most of what are we finding now are early to mid archaic. The bird points are exceptional. Lots of brokes but you know the drill. Move a lot of dirt to find the killer. We will be out weekend after next.
