from the garden

2 Showed up with the jpg last numbers of 256 and 803. Like NCHillbilly said, you are awfully lucky. Some archaeologist would probably LOVE to do a research dig on your property. It might be a nuisance, but it would also be very interesting to see what they found and could tell you about whether there were remains of an old camp or such. Great stuff, thx for the pictures, looking forward to the others!

Congrats on some awesome finds. I knew someone that had found several Clovis points, but I've never been lucky enough to find one.

Please don’t ever let a tiller or a disc into that garden. You have a truly spectacular spot to prospect.

Thanks for sharing:cheers:

The last 2 are probably some type of hafted knives.

How big an area are you finding these? I'd build me a sifter and dig up the whole garden and I would definitely NOT invite any archeologists nor even tell them where you found points.

They have plenty of "spots" that will never be anything but off limits to normal folks and will never be explored

This^^^^ Do not tell anyone about the location of your sight. As a young naive student at UGA in the 70s I took some good finds including a broken scull to some archeologist there to get more info on them. Being naive I did not get a reciept for them. When I went back to get them they said no, and that commomers like me had no business taking artifacts and that only profession people like them should have access to finds like them. Hard lesson learned.
And now they're sitting in a dusty cardboard box somewhere in a basement for eternity.
