very impressive collection ronn, very nice. Where do you find most of them?

Exactly what HM said.

very nice. the ones i find the neatest are the tools that they used like a hammer or sledge. I like that dark colored one were they used it so much their finger made an impression into the stone. I wonder the value to the Indians back then that had a decent tool collection. I would say you were a popular man if you had them.

And we have power tools and still cry about working..

I was raised in TN, well thats the way I see it anyway, and as a kid we would go look for them. This is in the 70's. Plowed fields in the spring right after a thunder storm or heavy rain. Soy bean fields were the best cause they plowed deep. The arrow heads would just be lying on top of the ground. In some fields we found pipes, axes, mini balls, maybe from the war of northern aggression, thats for you southern boys, but we don't know. there was fighting all over the place down there. Anyway look for a high spot in a field that is along a river or better yet where to rivers merge. Bruce the problem with up here is they, the people really didn't stay put. Water fall areas, for the fish, and rivers between the lakes were annual camp sites. The native peoples down there were mound builders, but they didn't make the effigy mounds that you see in Ohio. So if you see a flat field with a lump in it thats the place to look. The pics are just a few of the nicer ones. I've got a couple shoe boxes of things that aren't as nice along with a stone plow and hoe type tool. Anyway thats how we spent our weekends when I was a kid. When we moved back to NH we left a box of parts that weighted Oh a couple hundred pounds.

if you are talking about that dark one in my collection thats a stone axe and the grove was put in there to lash it to a handle. they would bind it on with stretched wet leather and when it dried it shrank and dried stiff as a mitten.

It was the Mississippian and Hopewell cultures so anywhere along the miss from southern Wis to the gulf from VA to OK. I think there are places in NY that have that mound building thing but Ohio, KY,AL,tn,GA,AR,mo,ms, I think the northern part of Fl.
