HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Had our 4th dig & picnic ( no BBQ in the dry woods )a day early to beat the crowds.

Photobucket

First time this year, back at the old dugout "drywash" area. Small ( but good ) find.

Photobucket

VERY good finds

Photobucket

Immediately identifiable, a quartz mano.

Photobucket

Well at least half of mano still good evidence of camp goods.

Photobucket

The picnic table layout.

This Kinney is about as good as they get AND so was the desert cupcake......

Little closer of the day's finds.

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Good looking finds, nice to see your digging partner out and about!

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Now I'm curious about that long stemmed white one. What's the story on it Hal?

Good eye Te, I'm very pleased with that one, will go in the one of a kind / unique ziplock bag..

There IS a perfect match with it in The OvrstS 12th under WELLS which is known for long stems but this may be pushing the size length.
DrH lists an EVANT, also early Archaic from this area but again it would be at the max limit for stem length.

I like Wells

I'll ask for professional help at FredB in 10 days

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Well, the reason I was wondering, is this is the third time I've seen a point with that long of a stem, way beyond what's considered normal. All three are really close to being the same overall design. Each was found in a different area. I think one of them was posted here a year or so ago that had a real long stem. A new un-named point?

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Excellent finds! That Kinney is awesome. Glad to see you got the Badger out. Cheers.

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Here's that quartz mano washed & back lit

Photobucket

The entire rock shows the fracturing lines so common on most Ctex quartz..Kinda scary,,,
IF a small piece were to sluff off in the ground food...it would be goodby tooth

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Firecracker day's find washed

Photobucket

The two on the left are Clear forks

Photobucket

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

Clear Forks? I thought you were calling my name. That bottom one is sure nice. Looks like you found two of those long stemmed points. That makes five of them now that I've seen. Wonder if that's the start of a newly named point type?

Re: HAPPY 4TH OF JULY

The lower CF is a good quality example, top, the working edge looks like he hit a couple of nails as he
was working the wood.
That other (cupcake) point stem being excessively long is just an illusion. Not sure what it is. The occasional Carrolton which have moderatly long stems have been found this far south..

If your campaining for a new point type, I'll vote for you, The CFREX point is original
