  • New Alabama Find

    This is the sharpest edge we've found so far. Most of our finds are well worn. Any info on it?

            You give us some info and we'll try to give you some info. Where in AL did you find it? As per "so and so" county , north AL southeast AL, etc. It can make a difference as to possible types. What type of stone is it made of? It kinda looks like quartzite. Is it a field find or a creek find?

                Extreme Southern AL. It is a creek find, which is my most common find. They are normally worn from the water and sand, but this one is almost sharp in places. There were a few of Indian tribes here but Poarch is the most likely for this area.

                  I just now saw your reply to my questions of a few days ago. I will try to reply to it as far as I am able. I collected in north AL so my knowledge of your area is quite limited. But I can say for sure that your artifact predates the Poarch Creek Indian branch of the Creek Indians by several thousand years. More to add later, I hope.

                Pickwick. Nice find. From what I have gathered, Any stemmed point with a"strong" notch and a and a"weak" notch is a Pickwick.
