Levi and I have been doing a little walking around at the farm between rains. Here are a few pieces we've found, and a bow I'm working on. The small corn field he is standing in is situated on a bluff over a creek with a small tributary immediately to the west. Classic village site, and the pottery and points we've found put folks here from off and on from as far back as 8,000-6,000 BC to Historic Period/European contact. Pretty cool stuff.

|As it lay|
|A small hand blade (top), and two utilized flakes. These were used as small knives or blades and discarded when done. Quick to make, and very sharp when freshly broken.|
