  • Yesterdays kayak trip

    I took advantage of the nice weather to paddle my way to a coastal site i discovered last year and the shifting sands were kind....

    My first find was a large quartz triangle. The excurvate edges are a little atypical for a Levanna, but thats what I am going with based on the size and the prominent tangs



    The second point was a quartz stemmed point wading river(?)



    They werent exactly hard to find today. Like the two quartz points, this Neville knife was just lying on top of the sand. There is a little damage to one of the corners but im not complaining



    Before the day was over i added a few more broken quartz pieces, a black flint Fox Creek (?) base and a little Brewerton corner notched point.
    it was easily the best day i have had in years and on top of all the great finds, i got to watch my buddy roll his kayak.... my sides still hurt from laughing!!

        Awesome finds...imI'not sure that would be a Levanna..the concave base is pretty deep....kinda looks hardaway -daltonish.. to me... I'd see what Hoss or Charlie or Jay would say . Congrats on the good day

          The white v-shaped one is pretty nice. Looks like you had a great kayak trip. I think it might be something else like Redrocks said.,,,,

                  Great pics and finds . What a great story to go along with yes a fruitful day indeed . Even that broke in the top left has a dalton look to it .

                    How’s that concavity feel? Sharp or smooth? I agree with Red, that’s probably not a Levanna.

                      The base is unground, except for perhaps some very light touching to the outside edge of the tangs. Having cleaned the piece up, it has the symetry and shape of a Squib more so than that of a Levanna. The size initially threw me off, but based on context and physical characteristics i think it is more likely a large Squibnocket Triangle.

                        What’s the age of the triangle then? I’m not from your area. Looks old to me

                      Sorry, i lose track of everyones locations....
                      quartz triangles can be hard to nail down in New England, the oldest and most lanceolate forms date to 9000bp.... squibnocket triangles are the most common in my area and overlap geographically with a more recently identified but slightly older “Annasnappit triangle”. The are ofter hard to differentiate and have a combined date range of 3000-7000bp
