      Hi OC. Glad you are showing us your finds. The stemmed point looks to me to not have been a finished product. Not a preform as such, just no finished edges and consequently I'm not able to give it a type ID.

      Nice ones sometimes when I’m walking a campsite I stop and wonder how many people were making the tools and points. And maybe it was just one person if all the finds are the same quality

        Not all ancient people had the same ability to produce quality pieces. I’m sure mine would of been ugly but just good enough to get the job done

        I know what you mean. Ive found them from early /archaic to late woodland in this site....was the camp here ? Further up the hill ?..how far did these artifacts travel underground ? .. where was the creek 6000 years ago ?...alot of questions....particularly if theyre of the same material i wonder if it was the same knapper

        If it is worked in the dirt like a farm could of been on the top of the hill. Most of the camps I find are on high ground

        I have a site also that produces finds from late archaic to woodland. Most of the finds are on or along a long ridgetop that I guess was probably 10 feet higher thousands of years ago prior to the plow. Good start to the year there OC...

          Ty Baba...the area i hunt is a series of terraces up from a creek 100 yards or so...below a ridge of prairie type land..alot of erosion and runoffs ..its fairly steep..i kinda just follow the rock trail

        Nice finds O.C. You know I always wonder about the creeks myself . Where were they 6k years ago . I think I am going to look at old maps in my area . I noticed the creek on my property has a bend that is going in 2 ft on a good rain a year . I am going to start marking it and see in a few years how much it has changed . Same with this one camp I hunt . The camp change I think is going to be a big help in finding new area to look at . It’s progressed to woodland but the high area and a slope near a river where not to any people will go has trans paleo to Archaic pieces . Large choppers. Just completely different artifacts .
        You really get to thinking on the past in some of these areas .

          Ty Tam and best of luck in your hunting.. yes I have recently found myself looking up basic science and geology terms ( been a long time since school books lol )...erosion by definition... I have some Creek property and the course can definitely change in a rainy season...my theory where i am is the creek was much closer to the site...the scope of time is so large in our "hobby "...lol... erosion is a huge factor in the type of areas i hunt...many of my surface finds have been under leaves on embankments of runoffs

            I have a property not sure how many acres it is but it’s farm land. What’s interesting is the Mississippian period is way above the Adena and the archaic is even higher as in the points I find. Adena being close to the spring head. That tells me during the archaic period the water was probably over the Adena camp and probably Mississippian period the water was over the Adena site. So water does change often. It’s a big deep creek that the spring runs into

            I found a Kirk on the tallest hill which is probably 100 ft above the creek so 7500 years ago or so the water was super high
