    My family owns land in North Carolina. After every farming season we used to go and hunt for Indian atifacts. These are just a few of many I have. The first pic is of stone arrowheads and one made out of a material I do not know. It is green, but that is all I can say. The other is some sort of stone pottery or stone carving with the image of the sun. I just found out that these items are from the Tuscarura Tribe not the Cherokee. They were the Native Americans on the land of my family.

      Ya, NC is such an awsome state. I have never had them looked at before. As a matter of fact I have never even looked at the value of arrowheads. Just to think some go for that high is wild. I have always wondered how old these actually were. Thanks for looking.

      how big is that flat piece, the non arrowhead
    5. jcollier83, 12 years ago
      It is the size of a grown persons hand without fingers. Like the palm of your hand.

      those grooves kinda look like they were carved from repetitive maybe it was part of a cutting board or something. i dunno, just a guess
    7. triddle21, 12 years ago
      I've found something very similar in along a river bank in Greenville, SC. Agree with geekasaurus about the repetitive use. Appears to be an abrading stone (sharpener) which were highly prized. Mine is almost worn in two.

      I believe the 2nd image is a chunk of natural rock hit by farm equipment, most likely a plow. I'm almost positive that's what you have, because I've found more than a few and most notably, my first similar find appeared to me to be a sun with etched rays comng from it, but upon further ispection it was confirmed as a rock hit by a plow.
    9. flashlarue flashlarue, 5 years ago
      The flat stone with the grooves was used in making arrowheads. The edges of flint had to be dulled while flaking to make the flakes longer until the final flaking pass. Go to YouTube and watch a knapping video and you will see what I mean.

      There,is a difference between plow and hand tooled Abraiding stones I live in a area,were the creeks tie together and all the hills and trees are all to close in and there is no fields that been plowed and every thing I found were dug out of a creek bed and many tools been found hammer,stones scrapers and spear points they do look like plow if there were tooling they would be tightly together if you seen my Abraiding stones they are all done by tooling you have a nice collection going on
    11. Dannytwofeathers Dannytwofeathers, 5 years ago
      I like to see the other side for more braiding they tooled all over them from side to side front and back top and bottom the nicest ones I found I posted I am doing a,live stream on these stones there are,more there

      It is definately abraded works from stone or bone tooling i have many in my collection all found here in bethania nc i think there is a connection from your area to here in my area in bethania nc there marks are the same i have recovered here there is no way there done by machine there marked on back front and sides as top and bottom there is divided lines which tells me the were sharpening the edges on both sides of there points and if the marks were wide they were tooling there axes or other weapons look at what i have found i feel there may be a tie in to the community of these people during the mississippian era
