  • Our first farm finds

    We just moved onto a new farm last year, and I am just finally turning over some new fields. We built a house in the woods on a slope and I found the little scraper thingy washing out of the dirt where we are trying to grow grass next to the house. Yesterday I was riding on the tractor and spotted the little Quartz point, I have only disked the field once but it exposed this point and a little rain shower made it obvious for me to see. I couldn't be more excited to find some artifacts on our own farm. Yee Haw!

      Yes sir. Found at home, I still can't believe it. There is a lot of old trash in parts of our fields and I have pulled out many pieces of plastic that I thought might be an artifact. I was riding on the tractor when I saw the point, assumed it was a piece of trash kept going, then curiosity got the bast of me I stopped the tractor got off and walked back ready for more plastic. But hey, it was the real thing this time!

            How nice to have your own homestead and then find NA artifacts to boot. Better than any crop you could plant! Congrats & hope to see many more as you work the land.

                In life there are losers and finders. Which one are you?

                  Does the site look like a campsite to you?

                    My first instinct is this is not a campsite. But I'm working on turning over about 20 more acres so maybe I will find a hot spot. The reason I say no is because of the lack of flakes or any lithic material. There is one spot next to my great grandparents grave that has showed some really nice quality rhyolite flakes and I'm hoping to find something there. There are reasons we could find a campsite though like a year round source of water, high well drained crowned fields next to the water. Old graveyards sit up high, sometimes a foot or more. This mostly has to do with plowing patterns and erosion over the past 200 years of tractor cultivation.

                    My question if I owned a farm with artifacts on it would be "How many times a year can I plow?"
