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.

    Vetraio, thank you so much. That's amazing as I love Suetonius and he's mentioned (I've read his The Twelve Caesars.) that Augustus often used this! Thank you, PhilDavidAlexanderMorris. I can look back and laugh, now. Thank you, mustangtony and pw-collector.

    Got in late & just scanning today's sh-t but loved your story.

    After all that maybe you should just buy one, glad you can laugh about it now.
    It is a neat looking piece, but most likely a geofact, as it shows no sign of being worked.

    Thanks so much, blunderbuss2 and walksoftly. Much appreciated. The fun is finding it in one's own backyard BUT I think I'll limit myself to hikes and such and not go digging, at least not on a hill with slick stone steps to descend whilst wearing gardening clogs. ;)
