Found these while detecting in a glacial lake , the bottom is very gray clay like where i found these, they showed up in my basket while looking for a metal target. I hope to get back there again. Any input would be appreciated.!!!

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Hay Dan,

That is interesting.

{alt}

I would guess that the one on the bottom left is a
Chesser. Dated about 1600-1200 B.P.

{alt}

Chesser points are found in Ohio and Pennsulvania.

What state did you find them in?

I do not know what the other two may be.

The top one is really cool l@@kin.

Thanks fer sharin,

Tabdog

That would be 3,200-3,600 years old.

The closest I can come to the one on the right would be a
Garvers Ferry 1800-1300 B.P. That would be in the same
period also. But it is not formed well enough to ID easily.

The one on top looks like a creek washed drill.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

Hi;

Been watching this for a few days....  that 3 cornered piece, soon as I saw it, struck a chord... BOING! I think, repeat think it is a fish net weight. And Tabdog, the same heads are found, here but have a different name and are not that old.... THESE are slate, that means not real actively used heads!

Votive offerings to the fish??

I had trouble accepting that they were slate.

I guess I should pay more attention.

It is hard to judge the size.

I was thinkin too small for a net weight.

Thanks fer joinin in Goldigger.

This is interestin.

I would be interested in knowing more.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

I measured these items, the arrow head measures 1"3/8 long and 7/8" wide. The triangluar stone is 7/8" from point to point, this stone is not slate. Could it be that the Indians used slate heads to spear fish, this is a small head and it would probably would work good for fish. They may have saved the good larger flints for big game. The triangular stone could be used for a weight, how bout a small hammer on the end of a stick? They were in water no more than knee deep. I hope to get back there after labor day weekend and get permission. Thanks for the imput tabdog&Goldigger. Happy Huntin/DW

I hope you tell us more.

I have always wondered if they used slate for anything.

The triangle peice odd. How did they get it like that?

Tabdog, that triangular piece looks more like granite to me. The stone age flint knappers used to hone the edges of their tools with granite. Perhaps those using slate did the same. It looks like it's been worn from honing the edges of arrowheads and spearheads.

That's just my opinion. I do have a book on stone aged tools. I'll look it up later.
