we went to dickson mounds today and had a few things authenticated, and the archeologist gave us this reference for point identification, and approximate age.

we sat and talked with the archeologist for a good hour yesterday. it was awesome. i really learned alot. i was a science major in college so i kinda had a little background in native american anthropology, besides watching all the the shows on the discovery channel, and the history channel.

i had some stuff authenticated. about 5 points, a stone effigy pipe, and a fossil. all the points were real, the pipe wasn’t (cries), and the fossil, which we had no clue what it was, turned out to be a 350 million year old plant (stigmaria) and the archeologist called it, “a nice piece”.  he also said that as far as he knows, no other fossils of that type have ever been found in central illinois.

That chart is sweet, thanks for posting it. Gonna check thier website and see if it ‘s for sale.
I cant get pics to open on my kindle? Anyone have any suggestions? Weird sometimes I can click and open on Arrowheadology.com and sometimes not.
Would really like to see the points and fossil.
Still have a big piece of honeycomb looking coral I found in a McLean county cornfield as teenager.
Thought that was pretty neat

Thanks for posting this.  Im assuming these are all types common to central Illinois?  Im guessing the one I found awhile back is either a Synders or Neuberger.  Thanks again!
