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

      Really neat design Tam looked through a book on that pottery type and did not see a design like that may be an undiscovered design.

          You know what gets me on this pottery is how thin it really is . Why they made it like that . The obvious to me is it’s going to crack much easier but I am sure they learned through trial
          and error this worked best .
          But what was held in such thin pots .
          Enquiring minds need to know .
          my next project .... get back to ya

            A striking potsherd Tam - could it be that you've found one of the 'Lost Tribes of Israel'??

            If the women don\'t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

                  You are welcome . Looking for the other pieces . You know what the armadillos are rooting up the soil and unlike hogs leave delicate piles for the rain .

                That’s about as good as it gets without finding a whole pot! Very nice Tam, and great pics.

                    Very nice Olden it makes me wonder what I would find if I dug that deep . Most of our finds are surface so you can imagine. Or animals just going down 1/2 ft with rain . Pottery on my property with no stamp and the Archaic point tells me I have a fun future there .
