16 - Arrowhead Hunting Around Cincinnati
I got home I called a friend of mine, Jon Dickinson, so we could get together
and catch up on things. We never do much catching up though, after a long
time apart we get together and it's right back to normal, like we had
both been here all the time. There aren't many people I can do that with.
Below is a detailed
description of the points in the photo.
#2 - I found this one out in Okeana, is most likely the tip or tail of an early Adena point.
#3 - Jon's find in Okeana, just a broken off point....what 130 years of plowing gets you.
#4 - Jon's find in okeana, another broken tip.
#5 - Jon finds another broken tip, pink chert...same stone as the number seven point.
#6 - Jon's find in Okeana. it's worked, smoothed on one side, he threw it back down on the ground, i picked it up.
#7 - I found this one in Okeana. we were walking a field very closely in an area that looked really good, all the tell tale signs were there. the same pink chert as the #5 point, found within 50 yards of each other. The dark smudge on the middle right side is a patch of crystals, no joke, like a geode or something, very small crystals.
#8 - I found this one not 60 seconds after #7. within 8 feet of each other. I think it's pretty cool, a little out of the ordinary. Both between 7 - 8 thousand years old.
#9 - I found this on round bottom road. Probably 90% of a 12,000 year old point, serrated on the sides, it's known as a bifurcate.
#10 - I found in Okeana. we had just walked the field where we found 7 and 8 and we just walked across the road to the next field, just as we were deciding there wasn't anything there, that the land was too low, I found this rear half of a nice sized adena point....right on top, completely exposed.
#11 - Jon found this point. these are the kind that kill me. you're walking along and see this thing stuck in the ground with the tail sticking out thinking it's a great find, you pull it out and it's only the tail piece. i think that would have been a really nice piece had it been whole. Jon gave it to me, as it was just a half of one...I'm still happy with a half, he has so many they clutter his room.
