  • Hardstone Axes

    This was found by my dad when he was checking hogs.  A sow that didnt have its nose rung was rooting this artifact out of the ground.

                Really nice axes. They are hard to come by in these parts.

                  Hi Ray,
                     Those are great finds even up there in the land of polished axes where you are. How many polished axes have y'all found over the years?

                        Ray, those are some beauties, I have only found one. This one from South Carolina has a few dinks and dings, she ain't pretty, but I will never part with it.

                          South Carolina axes must be pretty rare, huh. Thanks for posting yours. Ray

                            NOT....two halves of anything...or halves of axes. That is some pretty rough quartzite there. Sorry, not a heartbreaker!

                              Best I could do on short notice. I had this picture on my web page.

                              This one is 6" long too and a beauty. Found in New Haven Co. CT.
