  • Found 2 pieces now I'm hooked!

    I have recently become a lover of ancient native American artifacts. Its mind blowing to think the piece in your hand was also in the hand of a man or woman possibly thousands of years ago. That's incredible to me! Anyhow to the point, i found these pieces in the central Louisiana area in a lake that had been drained. In my opinion I've got a turtleback scraper and a knife of some sort. The turtle is just larger than a quarter at 1 1/2"× 1 3/4". The other is triangular in shape almost heart shaped at 1 1/2"× 2 1/4". Thanks in advance for your thoughts on these 2 pieces and any advice on my new obsession. Lol y'all have a wonderful day!

    Nice finds and welcome to the site. It is amazing holding that ancient piece in hand and wondering who, why etc..

      Yes indeed! It can take you to another time... it's really awesome. I'd gone out hunting with a friend several times and never found anything so it was just boring to me. I almost didn't want to go again but im so glad i did. I dont care that they're not arrowheads because they're still just as precious. So I've gone from bored tag along to ancient Indian artifact enthusiast!

      Funny that you say that because I am always looking down and that got me lost one day. I got seperated from my friend and because I was only looking at the ground on our long trek thru the lake I didn't know how to get back out. I trudged thru a bog I'm sure was equal to the Labraha tar pits and almost choked out by a vine going thru weeds taller than me. So the moral to the story is.. look up every once in awhile..😉

        Well Bruce, let me tell ya, I've been both. To be a finder wouldn't you have to first be a loser? Lol of course not, I'm just being silly but I am definately both, which makes me a winner baby!!😉

          Hmmm soooo, your hooked ? Nice finds ! Try to stay on the shoreline, those ancient shores hold the past... Those bogs no good for the leg muscles and stink too.....Walkie Talkie , not good to be lost. Myself I don’t like to go alone and your area I’d think it would be best to have a partner .. Luck be with ye !

            Live and learn right? Its a huge lake but where we were was near my friends house so i had an idea where i was i just didn't know where the trail was so i just made my own lol which wasn't one at all. Anyhow what's cool about it is that its fairly new, when you're thinking in arrowhead terms and you can't see the old river unless the lake is drained. So following the bank is impossible except for now! So fun! I'm gonna add a couple pictures because i think y'all would appreciate the history and the beauty of it. Thanks for walkie talkie tip. Good one!

          Carrie , I feel just like you do running those thoughts through my head . You find artifacts but you do wonder who why when right .
          cool finds , nice little scrappers .
          Sounds like you hit the panic button for a bit .
          BTW have you ever been to the La. B tar pits ? So crazy to see tar pit in the middle of a big city . That gets the mind going .
          Check out the projectile points on our site for your area . Get that new enthusiasm going with a head full of information .

            No I haven't ever been to the tar pits, I was maybe being a tad bit dramatic for the sake of my story lol. I have always wanted to go tho. I imagine it's wild! I absolutely will check out the site for those points you mentioned and thanks so much for info. I want to learn all i can so, right on!
