Miscellaneous Dug Items Click on any thumbnail for a larger image. Excavated, ornate, lead-filled, Cavalry rosette and an excavated, cast brass, Cavalry saber grip pommel cap. These two artifacts were recovered from a General N. Forrest Confederate Cavalry camp. Excavated pair of “Rooster Neck” regulation, cast brass, Federal Cavalry spurs. These spurs were recovered from Camp Stanley which was the Federal Cavalry main winter campsite here at Murfreesboro, Tennessee. One of the spurs remains in near perfect condition, and the second spur got too close to the fire and nearly completely melted away.
Detailed Search Welcome to OverstreetID Many years ago when all fluted points were called Folsom, before archaeologists began to identify other forms, the literature available to the collector was sparse at best. Over the past 70 plus years, archaeologists and knowledgeable collectors continued to discover and identify new arrowhead types. These new types are continually updated with each new edition of the Overstreet book. By using this online database you will be able to identify arrowheads of all shapes and sizes by comparing your point’s location with the nine geographic regions of the country provided.
With the Official Overstreet Indian Arrowheads Identification and Price Guide, over individual types have been identified nation-wide.
Texas Arrowheads found near Houston,Texas in the prehistoric campsites around Harris, and Motgomery Counties. Here are more personal found Authentic Texas Arrowheads I’m selling from my collection. The points in the white frame are \\\ each.
This suggests that the Paleoindian migration could have spread more quickly along the Pacific coastline, proceeding south, and that populations that settled along that route could have then begun migrations eastward into the continent. The Pedra Furada sites in Brazil include a collection of rock shelters, which were used for thousands of years by diverse human populations.
The first excavations yielded artifacts with carbon dates of 48, to 32, years BP. Repeated analyses have confirmed this dating, carrying the range of dates up to 60, BP. In , worked stone tools were found at Topper in South Carolina that have been dated by radiocarbon techniques possibly to 50, years ago. The Tlapacoya site in Mexico is located along the base of a volcanic remnant hill on the shore of the former Lake Chalco.
Seventeen excavations along the base of Tlapacoya Hill between and uncovered piles of disarticulated bones of bear and deer that appeared to have been butchered, plus 2, flakes and blades presumably from the butchering activities, plus one unfluted spear point. All were found in the same stratum containing three circular hearths filled with charcoal and ash. Bones of many other animal species were also present, including horses and migratory waterfowl.
Two uncalibrated radiocarbon dates on carbon from the hearths came in around 24, and 22, years ago. The hydration results were published in a seminal article that deals with the evidence for pre-Clovis habitation of Mexico. The study team suggest that finding this genetic evidence so far inland shows that “current distribution of genetic markers are not necessarily indicative of the movement or distribution of peoples in the past.
Further testing found that Anzick-1 was most closely related to Native American populations see below.

For many years archaeologists have shown great concern with projectile typology and a standardization of terms for projectile-point studies has been the focal point of innumerable efforts since the early ‘s.
It is rather surprising that now, as we approach the year , there is, as of yet, no real accepted standard terminology and certainly no standardized attribute list for the comparison of projectile point forms. I would highly suggest that any person who wishes to fully study the lithic terms in this glossary first obtain and study the wonderful work of Lewis R.
Other fine sources for terminology are: Cambron and David C. Hulse, Journal of Alabama Archaeology, Vol. Lewis, Tennessee Archaeologist, Vol. Hulse, edited by David L. This book contains a nice glossary of terms and explains all facets of stone artifact collecting and resources. Aborigine A native human inhabitant of a country or geographic area.
Abrading Stone – A stone, typically sandstone or limestone that was used to smooth or sharpen antler, bone, wood and other stone. Acute Severe short angles coming to a sharp point.

Although the state is a poor location for gemstones, Mississippi has a rich heritage of fossils as well as petrified wood. Much of the state contains sediments dating back to when ancient seas covered Mississippi. Interestingly, Mississippi also is home to an ancient, extinct volcano. In fact, Mississippi is the only state that has a volcano below its capitol, the Jackson Volcano that has been extinct for about 65 million years. Knowing state rocks, gemstones, minerals, fossils, and dinosaurs often can be very useful information for rockhounders.
Accordingly, such state symbols often are a valuable clue as to potential worthwhile rockhounding opportunities. Petrified Wood Mississippi designated petrified wood as its official state stone in Most of the petrified wood from Mississippi comes from trees that grew during the Oligocene Epoch, around 30 million years ago. The Gulf of Mexico’s shoreline extended further north at that time, which explains why the wood is found in the more northern parts of the state.

Native American Arrowheads Found In Texas X 5, Dating From Approx bc (): $25 Native American ArrowheadsAge: BC – BCArea: TexasThese arrowheads were all found in the US state of Texas,a basic Native American arrowhead ‘type-guide’ (see item pictures for .
By Rachel Asher ; Updated March 16, How to Identify Arrowheads Native Americans designed many different arrowheads — about 1, types are on record — and much can be determined about an arrowhead if you have simple information like the material it’s made of, where you found it and its shape and design. When you’ve properly identified the arrowhead, a world of culture and history will open up to you.
Though the object itself was only used by one individual, most likely a man, for hunting and fishing, it is the gateway to a culture that existed possibly thousands of years ago, on the same soil you stood on when you found it. Consider the Location Identify the location where the arrowhead was found. If you know the state or region where the arrowhead is from, that will narrow the list of possible projectile points from 1, to a couple of hundred options. Examine the Material Identify the material the arrowhead is made out of if you don’t know the region it came from.
Chert, for example, is native to the Illinois and Missouri area. Look at the Shape Determine the overall shape of the arrowhead. For example, is it stemmed, stemless or notched? If it’s stemmed, note the shape of the stem; stemless, whether it’s fluted or not; notched, whether it’s notched in the side or from the corner. The location and the design of the arrowhead is enough to narrow the type to only a dozen possibilities.
Do Some Research Consult a book that specializes in the projectile points from your area to cross-check your arrowhead with already identified ones.

Stone war clubs were soon relegated to ceremonial functions as everyone wanted an iron tomahawk to despatch rivals in love and war Palgrave, Napanee, Proton Station, ON Three iron axes that helped cut down the virgin forests of Ontario to clear the land for farming.
These three axes never cut down a single tree, as they are all “broad axes” used for squaring timbers, shaving the sides flat from fallen trees.

Water levels would have been high near the time of the final glacier melt enabling human travel along ancient trade routes. Soil conditions indicate that at one time the Wisconsin River was several miles wide in the center part of the state, and the escarpment of Door County as an ancient shoreline proves examples of this. Artifacts from this ancient civilization contribute to understanding the truly wide-ranging influences of early man.
Found at the Oconto site were freshwater clam shells indicative of the Mississippi River and a shell representative of the southern Atlantic coastline. Yet, it is copper for which this culture is known. They fashioned arrowheads and bracelets and other tools and ornaments But copper, like shells, was not native to either Green Bay or Lake Michigan. The only area along the major waterways of North America where copper is found is the Lake Superior region, some of the oldest land on earth.
It yielded vast quantities of copper both in ancient, as well as in modern times. Records made over twelve years at the turn of the century reveal that two and one-half million tons of copper passed through the Soo Locks.
