    New England Artifacts

    Post your stuff from New England here.

    Started this thread as a place to put my stuff up as I find it.
    Thought it would be cool if you added your local finds here too.
    It would become one big collection.

    I'll start of with my latest and greatest from Rhode Island.

    Here's a Small Rose Quarts Levanna. It was a nice surprise when I washed it off and saw it was rose quartz.

    Nothing even similar here. Do you know more about it? How it was hafted? The size would make it difficult to spot. Good find!

    Rose quartz is not that common. Very nice triangle, WarBow. There are several New Englanders here, and from what I've seen, they have some real nice collections. Hopefully, they'll post some stuff for you to see. Here are some surface finds from RI.

    1. A frame from a beach location. The grey flint point at top was found in 2 pieces 3 years apart. That's an English gunflint at the bottom of the frame.
    2. Some Brewerton Side Notch points.
    3. Jack's Reef points made from Pennsylvania jasper.
    4 and 5. Two frames of typical quartz points.

    Nice stuff! CMD - some cool ones in that first frame!

    Here's my (small) contribution - everything found at same spot about 7 miles from home in CT. All surface finds.

    Brewerton Side Knotch


    Not sure on this one


    Beekman triangle my wife found


    Quartz point - need to get a better pic. I think this is a brewerton too.


    Good stuff!

    Nice finds.

    I like the variety in materials. Are some of the types like Jacks Reef made primarily of certain materials?

    Do you ever find any historic colonial era relics?

    Palmwood, the 2 most common lithics for JR points in southern New England are Pennsylvania jasper and hornfels. The grey JR points in my first photo are made of hornfels, a volcanic in the same family with felsite and rhyolite I believe. A couple brass triangles are the only colonial period, in RI's case 17th century, Indian artifacts I've found. Did find a 1775 English half cent in one of our fields.

    Larry, nice finds!

    Lillyput, I might be wrong; but I think these were hafted by just putting a groove in the arrow shaft and then wrapping the shaft down tight with sinew.

    Thanks CMD, I felt really lucky to find that one. I wish the Rose Quartz showed up better on camera.

    Thanks everyone else for posting too. I envy your collections..

    Here's one more picture of the rose quartz next to a small quartz triangle.

    more quartz

    I think bottom right might be a broken scraper (not sure what the material is)

    The piece in the center is a scraper, I think bottom left might have been a scraper too.
