Those are neat  8)
I've found a few over the years. My favorite is kind of like the one on the upper right. I found it on the top of a mountain, I couldn't have stepped in any direction and been any higher. I've wondered what was on his mind as he sat there and laid it down.

Some years ago a friend and I got out of his truck at the lake. We were walking away from the truck when he quickly bent down behind me and picked up what must have been a stone knife. It was about 6" long and beautiful. I had a footprint on both sides of it  :'(  :D

Soo, tell us about this cave.

The cave is pretty neat. I have only been just in the front part of it. Afraid I'll get me rotund butt hung up if I go too far in. One of the local fellows has told me he and a friend pulled an old skeliton out of it and it went to some museum in Missouri. Lots of pottery and other stuff to. I haven't really looked around too much. I did take a metal detector in but there is so much trace ores in  it I got readings every where I pointed. Supposedly the thing is about 5-6 miles long and there used to be another entrance that is now sealed off. The official name of it is Brown's cave. The is another smaller entrance to it on my place but much too small to get into. it has a smalll stream that runs out of it most of the time and goes back underground as soon as it exits the mouth. It can however turn to a rushing torrent with good rains. It also has these neat litttle bitty bats about as big as the end of your thumb that I've been told are called Arkansas bats, supposedly kinda rare. The first room is about 15 x 20ft and the second one I'm not sure about. never been brave enough to go very far into it.

Anybody hunt arrowheads?
 

It was a passion in my younger days.  I got really got good at figuring out where they could be found.  My wife and I have found several thousand in all, more than 600 of them whole or only slightly damaged.  Some I have displayed in my home, although I need to display a lot more of them :).



Here is a photo of a display above my fireplace mantle.  The large spearhead in the center is one of the finest we (my wife found it) have ever found.

My neighbor found a long thin arrow head while tilling his garden about 15 years ago.  It was about 3 inches long and made of a gray colored igneous rock.  We figured that trade must have brought the thing here to Thomas swamp because we have no rock here. knives and arrowheads were made from oyster shell, or other sea creatures.  There were probably points from plants too.

We seem to always think that the indigenous natives were not very smart, lived in small family groups and had no yearn to travel.  In fact, there must have been great highways where trade was accomplished.  Smoked oysters to N. Carolina and arrowheads back to Florida.   Wouldn't it be great to see the roads and towns from before the Europeans discovered the place?

I used to spend a good bit of time on some of the large plantations along the west bank of the Flint River in Lee County.  That area is a treasure trove for arrow and spear head hunters.

Nice bowls Harold. I've been told there are pieces of potery in the cave although I haven't found any yet. I thought the stuff the boys found was interesting because they look to me to be from different time periods and they were all in one place. Anybody know enough about them to confirm or refute this? What about it WDH?
By the way, thousands huh.  :o. Did you find them all in one area or all around the country?

I don't know a whole lot but they do appear to be from a wide range of time and people. I don't think you're seeing a Clovis or Folsom, the spearpoint is large and the middle flute is very pronounced in the ones I've seen.

There has been a discovery down in eastern Virginia around the Nottaway river of some old points that are turning some of the Clovis theories around. They were found on IP land. I've planted and picked up a few points down there but they are down to a whole nuther layer apparently. The ones we got from there were in a stone that looked like compressed quartz sand. One estimate put the newly discovered ones at 15,000 to 17,000 years ago, well before the known Clovis culture. They are bifacial but unfluted. I've read one speculation that they might have come across the ice from France, the points match some over there.

You are right about trade Tom. Saltville not too far from here has been a favorite salt spot since mastadons and ground sloths wandered around. There have also been some neat artifacts found there. Seashell necklaces, points from all over out of rocks from all over and all through time. People got around and traded more than we think.

That top right one looks like it could be a Clovis point.  WDH, do you know?

If the artifacts were found together in situ, then it is unlikely that they are as old as the clovis culture because of the stemmed point on the lower left.  Stemmed points like that one date from the late Archaic Period to the Woodland Period which began about 5000 years ago and ended about 1500 years ago.  That is still plenty old though.  Most projectile points are older than people realize.  Also, in this late Archaic time period, the bow had not yet been developed, and the weapon of choice was the spear thrower or atlatl.  So these projectile points are small spearpoints or darts that were thrown with the use of the atlatl.

Pretty cool. I found a few when I was in the USA, but not many. While digging out a drainage system for grey water here, one of the workers found a piece of Mayan pottery (shaped like a tapir) and gave it to me. Pretty cool really.

I made a joking post a week or two back on the political thread about this.  My grandkids and I  learned about the ancient use of the atlatl, a spear throwing tool.  I learned a few things I didn't know.  These guys say most arrowheads are actually atlatl points, and that the Indians only began to use the bow 1000 to 2000 years ago. True arrowheads are really pretty small.  The guys doing the demostrations also made arrowheads out of chert.  In about 10 minutes he made an arrowhead that was as good as many I have found.
 



I used to find a few arrowheads where we kept hogs.  After a hard rain they would show up on the bare ground.

We are going to a flint knapping affair in Willard MO. It will be the 26 - 28th of Sept., but I would imagine we'll only go one day. Should be interesting to say the least and a good chance to spend a little father/son time.

I look for points everday. I can't even work after a hard rain and sometimes when I'm real busy I look at night. One of the best points I have I found at night. I don't know how many whole ones I have , maybe 350-400 and 1000 broken ones. This is the only cheap, safe hobby I've ever had.

The difference in posted pictures and profile pictures is just the pixels.  On pictures for posts you are allowed better than 400 pixels for either height and width.

But, for profile pictures, the limit is about 110 pixels.  There just isn't enough room over there on the side of the page for a big picture.

Must confess something that works for me. ;D
I always e-mail the picture to myself first.  It asks me if I want to make it smaller.  I click yes. ;D
Open the picture in e-mail and click save as to save in my Pictures .
Then I open the xat program, select and insert the pic to be resized.  The picture is already at 640x 480.  Resizing from that point is a breeze.  Works for me. ;)

Wow, a kirk corner notched just southwest of the big celt in the center.  Also, an old old side notched point just to the east of the celt.  Better than 9000 years old I bet.  Beautiful frame.

I love pottery, and that is a fine pottery display.

I wish I knew more about his pieces.  There are more somewhere.  She has more Pottery Pieces on this stand I made for her.  It was meant to be a plant stand with 6 mutant legs so it wouldn't tip from the weight but she found a better use for it. :D

That is an old one!  Kirk corner notched.  Circa 6000 - 7000 B.C. or about 8000 to 9000 year old.  A beautiful piece of antiquity.  That one is a centerpiece for sure.

Yep, heavy equipment does a number on them but most of the time that is the only way they get back to the surface.

Banjo picker  I posted your picture for you. ;D
Jeff and I found some arrow heads when we went and visited Bro. Noble a few years back.  I will have to find them so I can post a picture of them. They sure are fun to look for. ;D

Those arrow heads are something else, 9000yrs old thats incredible. I am glad we don't get any down-under I wouldn't get any work done, its bad enough having saphires in our creek, forever walking around looking at the ground.
