I love the patina on the dark piece in the middle and I think it might be one of my oldest items. It was in a creek across from a natural prairie.
The majority of the points have been purchased from collections.
Blades or knives come in different sizes and shapes, and I always enjoy adding another. I think the different shapes were for specific tasks in skinning hides and making other wooden items. The second photo is showing the bottom of the item and it's size.
A chisel and a celt.
Misc. tools. Burins, engravers, an awl, small knives.
There is one thought North America was populated far beyond what the present date and it is based on the style of tools discovered at sites in Europe. I am going to give you links of photos for the different styles and when you look at a number of my items, they have the same distinct shape. Most noticeable is the Aurignacian period( 47,000-41,000 years ago). There is a ridge running down the middle of some items and others have a flat area running down the middle. I have included three time periods and hopefully you can compare some of your pieces to the photos.
Sorry, but you have to copy and paste the links.
I want to show these items in hopes of letting people know to be careful these days. I had an authenticator, Alex with the Artifact Company in Kentucky, look at them and they are all modern. Very nice pieces but still fake. Notice on the large items, he had made it look like personal finds and were suppose to have been from Kentucky. The material is from Texas and the authenticator actually knows the person as he has seen other items he has done.
A friend I have mentioned before, Bill Waters, sent me this great spud.
