  • Noob needs help - First Find!

    Hey Everyone,

    I am a Scoutmaster for a local Boy Scout Troop and a History Buff! After two years of searching I finally made my first find! I found it in Clark County Indiana on a private farm. Can someone id the the time era and possibly the tribe? Also what are some good places or books for me to start?
    MY FIRST FIND!!

        It does look like a Brewerton Eared Triangle:

        Around here(RI), those are in the 4000-5000 year old range.

          Agree with the others and so old it's not associated with first contact tribes you would be familiar with.

                depends on what you want to learn. Get an overstreet to help you identify point types. They are not perfect but great for beginners who want to learn the types by geographic area.

                  Congratulations on finding the point!

                  For reading, see if your area or state has an archeological society, some have started putting back issues of bulletins on line. You would enjoy reading those

                        Is that size rare for Brewerton Eared triangle? Your local typology guide archeologists would love to see that

                          Likely smaller then average in any region found, but from first stage through several resharpenings results in a wide range of size....
