Celts, Some Broken. Celts with ground edges can be surprisingly sharp. They are often reworked. There is many times more broken Celts than intact ones.

I only have arrow heads. My 94 year old grandmother dug them when she was a kid on the farm.

The game ball is interesting. You know it took dad a week to make it and the kids lost it in the back yard the first time they used it.

Any ideal what the one on the right is. It rolls like a tire, hollowed out on both sides to balance it is what it seems like,

Nate, pieces like the one on the right are called discoidals. No one is exactly sure how the discoidals were used, but they were a type of game stone. There were none found predating the Woodland Period and they then became very popular. I suspect they might have been used with the game balls. It could be you tried to land your ball in the discoidal and other people tried to knock it out. It may have been similar to Bocci.

You have some very fine pieces.

If you would like to post pictures of your arrowheads, I would like to see them.

I've posted these pictures a couple times before. Ancient ice spud?? I don't think it was for chopping on wood, it was not found in a region that has trees. it is sharpened on both ends; almost like it's reversible.

Glad you like them I really enjoy showing them to people to enjoy. The big black blade is very fine piece,it's just under six inches and was never sharpened on the top side meaning it's close to original as when they finished it.
Here's a few more hope you enjoy them. I found all these none are bought and there documented.

I remember seeing your ice spud. Thanks for posting again. It is very cool. I would guess it's made of basalt?

Nate, you have some great finds. I've only found around 70 artifacts, most of what I have, especially in points, I've bought. There was a camp or small village on my farm. Most of what I have found here is tools used for making pemmican. I think I may have 2 small mounds on my farm. In 2020 moles pushed fragments of pottery out of 1 of them. I left it lay. Most of the tools I've found have been on 3 sides, downhill of one of my barns. I think the Natives camped right where the barn is.

Thanks Keith
You have some way cool stuff as well thanks for sharing with us. I've walked several miles of creeks/rivers to find it , I've found a few campsights as well and have them documented, been slowing down alittle as I age and spend more time with family. I'm going to eventually donate my finds to a historical society, I may destroy all the doucmented sights and documents to the individual pieces. I've got some way cool bones of primitive animals as well I may post them here sometime.if you have anymore stuff please share with us.
