  • What dya think?

    OK ya'll - This is almost the strangest find I've made. I had the state archaeologist look at it and he said it was a river ROCK but not necessarily an artifact. I showed him the fit to the hand and the notch in the end but he wasn't impressed. I'm still not sure. It's just tooooooo coincidental to be a river rock??? ; Soooo, What do Ya'll Think????

    I think it is just a rock. Different one for sure but just a rock. If you look long enough you can find every shape you could think of in just rocks.

        Well - that's 3 for 3 so I guess It's just a rock.  Darn.  I had high hopes too.  Back to the hunt!!!!

          Hey man, this is one tough crowd when it comes to rocks, I mean just rocks! Still very unique rock.

            They undoubtedly know more than I do and the rockologist said the same thing.  None-the-less I'm gonna keep it cause I found it.  There!

                Don't get discouraged Scorpion, I live along Beech Creek and was confvinced that I had found an unfinished stone pipe, and I to was informed by the specialist I know that it was merely a river rock. Now that I have been hunting for 6+ years you will indeed come across every shape size and speciman of "just a rock" you can fathom. But it is still neat whether an artifact or not. Bill

                  Thanks ya'll for commenting.  Although I've been hunting for a long time I really haven't tried to really analyze or classify any of my finds until recently, when I took some of it to an archaeologist at the National Park.  He knows his stuff and I was blown away by the way he could just look at an arrowhead hafting area and tell me what it was.  I guess it comes with time and work.  I'm up for it.

                      Hey Scorpion,
                        I'm afraid I'm in agreement with everyone else in that it's just a rock.  But who's to say, it wasn't used as it is. 
                      It may have been used to pound out grains like corn or maybe as a hammer stone.  Like I said, who knows?
                      Keep it if you want to.
