This has an interesting story to it. I found it on our property near a front flower bed and a friend who knows an archaeologist sent him the photos. The archeologist believes it could either be an arrowhead or a geofact, an object that looks like something that's been carved or sculpted by man but is, in fact, wholly an untouched geological artifact.
So, I became enthusiastic that perhaps I might find more arrowheads on our property and I joined an arrowhead site and went digging up on a hill in the back on Nov. 2 of last year.
As I was descending stone steps to our deck, my hands full of what could have been arrowheads or even pottery shards (Lots of speculation here and I was proven wrong when my husband finally collected the scattered pieces a month or so later and told me, sadly, that they were just rocks.), I slipped and shattered my ankle, requiring surgery that evening and 15 pins and screws to hold things together. Still, six months later I am recovering and this arrowhead remains on the kitchen windowsill.
I have lost my enthusiasm for arrowhead hunting.
