I've been reading the forums for a couple days and couldn't help notice all the nice ccc finds.
My roommate and I went last Sunday, both us were first timers. We had no clue what we were
doing. We just brought garden shovels haha. I had only known about surface hunting and we had
little luck after hours. Richard sent us to c13, but the ground was so hard so we just walked around...
Found a lot of flint, and a back half of a small point. Right before dark we went back as braced the
hard dirt, and the top half of a whitish red point.
With all that being said I would really appreciate any tips or advice, especially on preparation and
hopefully some understand of the depth at which artifacts are found.
Thank you, and hope to hear some input!
Also I found Hals little stickman stone carving, does that count as a cave drawing?
There is 10 years worth of interesting info in the past message postings... Use that search block above using just general words...Like "TOOLS"....
Part of the hobby side of collecting is making digging tools that suit yourself, some can be pretty exotic.
How deep etc is purely experience... take note of other diggers or at least where fresh dirt is obvious. For the moment that C13 area of C3 is a good area to concentrate on.
Loads of story books & reference. For digging education, no substitute for being near other diggers.
" necessity is the mother of invention ". . . . If your serious about "digging" you'll soon grasp that very pointed iron with leverage is needed.
