A Great Find


My hiking stick is pointing to just how the arrowhead was lying as I walked up this hillside.


I have a found a couple of  "probable" arrowheads in the past but this one left no doubt in my mind
This was the real thing.


My theory is the Indian shot and missed.  The arrow hit the rocks and broke off the tip of the head.  Now useless, he removed it from the arrow shaft and tossed the head to the ground.
No Thanksgiving turkey for him.


I thought about it that evening wondering if maybe I could find the broken tip.  I went back the next day and was able to find the spot where I found the arrowhead.  I looked around but no tip.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  5. Very nice find! It's made of obsidian. It's fairly rare, so I'm surprised that when it broke, he didn't pick it up to re-point it.
