Recent Finds July 2020: Snorkel point fever! Nothing more fun than snorkeling the river for arrowheads when it's 90 degrees outside.
ABOVE and BELOW: A great arrow point I found in 2018.
ABOVE: This is a piece of red pipestone from Minnesota found near the Missouri/Arkansas border after recent floods. This cylinder is a drill core produced while drilling pipe stems. A hollow river cane is rotated in quartz sand and water slurry to drill the hole. A cylindrical column is produced from drilling, and then snapped off when complete, leaving the draw hole in place. This piece of red pipestone is proof that raw material was traded over long distances, and that pipes were then carved by local artists. AWESOME FIND!!!!
