Found 24 results

  1. I forgot to post my last North Sulphur River Texas hunt. I found a nice variety of items. The cretaceous fish piece was definitely my find of the day. I had a crop duster buzz me for at least an hour. I found some nice coprolite specimens and a cool reworked artifact.
  2. I spent a few hours each at the North Sulphur River Texas and Post Oak Creek Texas. I had a nice variety of cretaceous finds.
  3. Lauderdale/ Limestone County line

    I’m VERY new to this but have had some luck( I think). I had them all separated but with the storms came a strong enough wind that a piece of a tree that my husband uses in his hand built smoke knocked the leg off my table and boom there they went and then had to chase my protectors to get some back. Anyway, does it make since that all the different items would be found in a very small section of my yard. The dog house is farther away. It may take a minute to up load the pics. Of course if you want to help ID any I would give you a Dixie land, “Bless You, child, Bless You!”
  4. Is this a fossil or what is it

    Sorry I don't know where this comes from exactly. It was found at an estate sale in Texas. Was told it was a part of a collectors pieces from Southwest U.S. and was presented as Native American. So far Native American people think it is a fossil so here I am asking your opinion. It's heavy, fits in the palm of your hand, has a noticeable single ridge on the humped side, has a hole in the top and a hole in the flatter side; is black in color with many grey channels or etchings on the humped side. In your opinion is this a fossil and if so any idea what it is of? If it helps, it feels kind of cool to touch. Thank you for your interest and time.
  5. Strange writing on this rock any ideas

    I found this on a canyons this morning in Thousand Oaks California
  6. Big Brook Finds!

    Hi all here are some finds I cannot identify from Big Brook. Please let me know what you think! Any help is appreciated. First up I believe is some kind of pleistocene horse tooth fragment? But I am not sure. Thought it was a ratfish jaw frag at first from the other side, but it's like nothing I've seen. Below, this is what looks to be a fish tooth of some kind, but it seems to have some of the root attached. So no hole visible at the bottom. Slightly larger than a quarter in length!
  7. You all were so unbelievable in quickly identifying my septarian concretion yesterday, I would like to press my luck. I found this rock last summer near Durango, Colorado. It was in an area thought to be used by Native Americans. Many Thanks! EE
  8. New! Holmes county Mississippi

    Just started observing petrified wood in our creeks where we hunt and noticed some other things outside petrified wood. Just looking to see if any of these are fossils/teeth/tusk?/some may be Native American. The longest piece has been carved on for sure looks to be on bone.
  9. Native American Artifact? Bone?

    I found this in North Texas in a well-documented fossil/Indian artifact creek. I found this, and have been unable to confirm what it is. It is dense, and seems to be ground heavily in two spots in particular (on perfect for a thumb). It's approximately 3 inches long and 1-2 inches thick. Is this some kind of hand tool? Any ideas would be great.
  10. My brother and I found this fossil shark tooth in the gravel beds along Firesteel Creek near Mitchell, SD. We have gone several times and found many shark teeth but to my knowledge, this is the first Hemipristis serra that we found. I believe this tooth has been worked by Native Americans. There is a perfectly circular hole in the root - or it would be circular if part of the tooth weren't broken away. I have read that worked fossil shark teeth from the Chesapeake Bay, including Hemipristis serra, have been found in burial mounds as far away as Ohio. My questions are: do you agree that this tooth has probably been modified by prehistoric people? How widely distributed is Hemipristis in North America? Is it likely to have been found and worked on site or might it have been traded from the east coast?
  11. Help with a fossil ID

    Hello, I made my second fossil hunting trip, this time to the North Sulphur River. I have a couple things to run by the veteran folks: The first is what I think is a mosasuar vert. Is that correct? Also, the second is a petrified wood object. On one side are two well-worn grooves. Can anyone help out on what this could be? Some kind of caddo tool or a piece of junk? Thanks!
  12. http://www.library.umaine.edu/theses/pdf/mooreec2002.pdf My apologies for the horrible typo in the title
  13. Short and hot 2 hr hunt at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a nice variety of items. Mosasaur Vert, Possible Fish Rib, Biface Preform Artifact, Mastodon Tooth Enamel. It was so hot the rocks were burning the soles of my feet through my dive boots lol.
  14. Hello everyone, hope you all had a great Christmas! Here is what I got for Christmas Here's what they are in order: Cave Bear Ursus spelaeus canine tooth (4"), Cave Bear finger bone, Ohio Native American knife/arrowhead, Native American arrowhead from Logan Creek, Iowa, small Mosasaur tooth, bag of Hell Creek micro matrix, a nice sized chunk of meteorite, and a beautiful piece of Labradorite
  15. I am a resident of wisconsin and i live in the Milwaukee area. Every year, my family and I go out to Wyoming to a town where my grandma has lived for the last 30 years, Doubois, WY. We go there for about a week and rock pick and explore. We find agate, petrified wood, fossils, one arrowhead, this unidentified rock that looks like a small dinosaurs leg with a couple pieces in the back of the rock as well, which i found in the Wind River, and a bone carved into the shape of a tooth (obviously not chewed or naturally formed that way) i found at the back of a pitch black cave. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what these are or if they have any ideas where to take them and have them looked at. (It will only let me post the rock, the bone pictures won't fit, hopefully i can figure something out)
  16. Ok, I am a newb at all this. I am interested in finding a real fossil but after reading several posts, I just decided to ask if this is real or not. I found this on ebay (eBay item number: 271846574029 ) and it claims to be both a fossil and an axe head carved by a Native American. What are your opinions? If this is true, I can only imagine that it will make this extremly rare and valuable and hard to beleive its just being sold on ebay.) Thanks in advance! From the auction: (It claims these are fish or dinasour scales) (Knotches made for axe?) (The other side does look like an axe head)
  17. I know this is a fossil site but i was hoping someone here may have came across something like this before and may have some info to pass on. i found this near fenton, mi near a old tree while tilling. It was a little over 20 inches deep. it is almost perfectly round very very smooth and heavy and extremely hard. When hit by my tiller it got no damage only damaged my tiller. The tiller left metalic marks on the stone. i have since used my different things to try to scratch it with no luck. everything i use just just damaged. the item weighs around 41.7 grams
  18. Really Want To Know What This May Be

    i found this while surveying a new constuction site in SW Florida. it was in the foundation dirt. so its really hard for me to say what eles was there. mostly a mixture of mammal, and marine life. Im real curious of the hole on the wider end, it looks like it has been burrowed or man made.... im really hoping. i do not know what it is, so if you have a definate answer that would be great

  20. I was at one of my tooth hunting sites on a slower day and happened upon a broken bone buried in the muck. I see a lot of this and did not think twice. But, as I passed it I noticed a groove so I Kicked it over and noticed a matching groove on the other side. Of course this got my curiosity up, and noticed more detail upon cleaning it off. What are your thoughts???
  21. shell hammer

    From the album LINE-DRAWINGS & ARTIFACTS

    This example of a Native American artifact is interesting because it shows the hafting technique, the wear on the tip of the hammer (columella) end, and the wear on the hole for the handle. In use, the hole in the thinner sidewall migrated under the concussive pressures.

  22. Hey Guys, I know its a fossil forum but I feel native american artifacts go hand in hand so dont blow a fuse. I have found arrowheads here and there. not as many as I would like to admit. I dont know if I am looking in the wrong places or what. I know the basics, plowed feilds after a rain, creeks bed, ect. Are there any particular places I should be looking, any geological characteristics, bluffs, ect. Should i be looking in creeks or is that more of a waste of time than anything else. If i were to survery a certain area, how far should i dig while sifting the land. I want to know everything there is to know when it comes to native american finds in new jersey with maximum productivity. I would really appreciate any help, knowledge, and advice that would help me out. Also have a question in regard to tips. Is it possible that archaic and paleo indians may have made spears out of iron stone? I know that it is everywhere in Parts of new jersey but i have found a piece that seems to have been worked. it doesnt have conchoidal fractures since its not chert but it is pointed, it was not from a river bed, it was from a turned field, and it has definately been worked. thanks for the information!
