handaxes and stuff

Let's see, if the truth is that there were preclovis peoples here in the states, and the truth is that evidence has been found in numerous places, and the truth is ancient DNA has been found to support the previous truths, and the truth is that there are hand axes in north america because we have th...

early man in the U.S.

Traditional archaeology will have a hard time displaying much that would be considered an early man assemblage of artifacts. When a site such as Topper or Meadowcroft is found it is years before enough material is assembled to actually constitute a recognizable industry. Although employment security...

early man stuff

cogs, looking at your pieces it appears that the material being used was suitable for levallois style core prep and i suspect that you have found some points from those cores. If you have pics of any of the points i'd love to see them. There is also a vascular surgeon in georgia who says that he has...

early man in the u.s.

Cogs, how did you arrive at your dates? I can tell you that the handaxes you showed in the post were very likely made by the same kind people that made my stuff. I have a matching piece for each of the ones you show. Personally, I would be willing to go out on a limb and say that in a side by side c...

indiana stuff

The provenance of the collection is i found every piece personally. Images 003.jpg and 072.jpg were not from indiana but tennessee for the most part. I found the remainder of the pieces near my home in southern Indiana. I have to contest the idea that there are no handaxes in North America because I...

indiana stuff

thanks for your input about the scale, keep in mind that the vast majority of the pieces are designed to be held between the thumb and first two fingers for cutting, scrapeing, incising,etc. Very few lower and middle paleo points were used as projectiles in fact many tools that are classified as poi...

indiana stuff

I am rather curious to hear what the readers think they are looking at, I can tell you that they are mostly flint, with the exception to the few pieces of bone and petrified wood. Due to the picture quality , much detail is missed but virtually every piece has clear evidence of human manufacture suc...

indiana man's discovery

popelane24, after reading your post I too was flabbergasted at how someone could so distort a simple comment. it reminded me of the pass it on game where you whisper in the person's ear next to you some bit of info and they whisper the same info as they heard it to the person next to them and so on ...
