    Fire blackened rock is an archaic site diagnostic in many parts of the country.

    To the extent that anybody cares what I think (if there is one), I wouldn't write any of those off offhandedly. The nutting stone in particular.

    I don't see any undisputable evidence of fire blackened rock. Other geological events could have created that stain. (FWIW)

    We just have so many in this one pile that I was sure it was natural. I've not climbed down there in a while since my mobility has become very impaired. We had a tremendous amount of clear cutting which muddied the creek waters. I had not been at this particular part of the creek in several years and could not understand where our quartz and quartzite had all disappeared and now we have this mound of small 5" X 4" , 8 inch x 4 inch "blocks" that are half black or completely black. That's not normal for this area. I only just recently started reading about stone tools. We also have strangely "eroded" stones with black markings in various places. I assumed it was something natural. This is stupid but since the water was so murky I thought it was some sort of black algae ... but it definitely is not. Will send some photos. Also found a footprint fossil with five toes and I can't tell....several other depressions with one that is obviously a slide mark in the mud

    That was misleading. The fossil was not in the same area
