    Without having in my hands to pore over, it’s possibly part of a stone axe. Bssec y guess is hide scraper.

    Without having it in my hands to pore over, I’d say it could be part of a stone axe. My other thought is hide scraper.

  • Wade's avatar

    @Gobbler I was thinking a scraper but it’s pretty good size and shaped like a axe for sure

  • Gobbler Knob's avatar

    @Wade whichever use it was intended for, that’s a very cool find!!

  • Wade's avatar

    @Gobbler the deer just dig this stuff up in this lick. Every time I go to it I find Indian stuff

  • Gobbler Knob's avatar

    @Wade that suggest to me it was a camp/village. Have you looked around for any more artifacts?

  • Wade's avatar

    It’s in the middle of hardwoods next to the tn river. Lots of leaves

    Definitely a tool, but may have just been an expedient tool for rough work, or the last piece of a core they struck smaller flints off of.

    Cool find I'm thinking an ax but it seem like some of it is broken off.

  • Wade's avatar

    @Casi yes mam it has a good edge on it.

  • Casi's avatar

    @Wade definitely does it's pretty obvious. I wish I was an archaeologist!

  • Wade's avatar

    @Kyle it has a really good edge. I don’t believe it’s a core but I could be wrong.

  • Wade's avatar

    @Casi I wish I had time to get out and hunt arrowheads but if I’m not hunting critters I’m usually working 😩

  • Bruce's avatar

    That’s pretty cool, I found an old lick that someone had started

  • Bruce's avatar

    Meant to add that I found some worked pieces in that old lick, it was also by a small creek that flowed into a larger stream.

  • Casi's avatar

    @Wade I know such a little time so much to do! I haven't foound arrowhead in 2 years cus no time to hike around.

  • Wade's avatar

    @Casi I understand totally
