  • Junction city Kansas

    So where is a good area to search?  Red areas are where I’ve walked around. Today I went to a rock bar where I was told ancient Indians were around the area. Kinda disheartened but have been told pottery to arrowheads have been found. This is Clark’s creek in Geary county Kansas that I’m searching. Was told K state archeological team have been out here.

    While I couldn’t read you entire post, I think I got the gist of it.

    1)anywhere you can gain access.
    2) that creek bed, if it ever gets low enough to see gravel bars.
    3) High ground on the inside bends of the creek.
    4) literally any patch of bare ground

      Welcome Tim.
      Jethro gave you good advice. With permission worth checking out much of that area around the creek and areas don't have to be right next to the creek. Keep an eye out for flakes, fire cracked rock, those are usually your first indicators you are in the right area. Remember, you may not find something first time out, give it 2 or 3 trips.

        Thanks! That’s exactly what I needed. I got down to the creek bed and was frustrated. So many rocks but some odd looking flint pieces that looked like potentially chipped on purpose. Thank you sooo much

          Keep after it. You may not find anything for a trip or three, then stumble on a few good ones in a short excursion.
          Keep us posted.👍👍

          I’m pretty sure this is a one of a kind ceremonial artifact...
