Has this been knapped ?

It has sharp edges much of the way around. Is this the way it broke off or has it been worked on?

I'm thinking no, but I could possibly be wrong. If I had tried to knap that nasty chunk of rock, I would have thrown it as far as I could through the woods. :)

Sometimes desperate times calls for desperate measures. My first point/knife I found was just a crude white quartz. 1/2 inch thick, 1 inch long and about 2 and 1/2 from base to tip. It was like they left the ugly just to keep it together. And it worked.

Yeah, I've found some crude ones. But not that look like a square, unknapped chunk of rock.

Not sure the pottery is Indian. I don’t see the black in the middle on the edge and no pattern on the sides. I would have to see in person. Just saying.

I would personally continue looking around that area for artifacts. I think yall found a good spot. I like to think about how things may have been back then. Like, what if a knapping mentor gave this ridiculous chunk of rock to his student to see what they could come up with, knowing that would be what it turned out like as a joke/prank? Just spit balling....Kinda like how our uncles teased us all back in the day?
