Thanks for coming over to check out our finders and their finds from our Treasure Island site and The Pocket! We hope you enjoy our pics and vids and take a moment to drop us a line.
The anticipation was killing us! lol Great job on the unveiling, Jody, and congrats on that stellar Citrus!
This is the best example of a Fairland known!!! These are beyond rare for Central Florida, I have only personaly seen one other found, and it was found about 10 miles from this one.
An exceptionally rare Benton made out of Tallahatta Quartzite, and traded to this location from the Alabama area!!!
This is a late archaic projectile point that is around 3000 years old.
Christy pulled this awesome 3000 year old Culbreath on her birthday! And on the very last table of the day! Congratulations!!!
This is a really great example of a deep-notched and rounded base Citrus! Late Archaic, approximately 3000 years old!
As a first time relic hunter, Tim couldn't have pulled a better point! A killer 3000 year old rocket Culbreath!
What a stunner of a Culbreath, and made out of a milky translucent heat-treated coral too!
What a great reveal on this killer late archaic Lafayette!
Love the style and material on this true bow and arrow point!
This is by far one of the finest and rarest ancient artifacts to come out of the ground at one of our sites! It is an atl-atl bannerstone that is made out of steatite. Truly as rare of an artifact as it gets. Domestic soapstone (steatite) derives geologically from a line of talc and accompanying miner deposits that run along the Appalachian Mountains from New England to Georgia, so the stone had to have been traded in. Although archaeologists and collectors have yet to fully understand the actual purpose of boatstones, the general consensus is that they are atl-atl weights, used to improve the velocity, distance, and accuracy of atl-atl spears. There is a new theory suggesting that they are used to counter-balance the weight of a spear and spear thrower ( atl-atl components ) while the hunter is waiting to throw at his or her target, thus lessening fatigue from holding them while waiting to throw. Some are believed to have been used as adornment status symbols and talismans. Amazing in every way.
