Banded Slate Bannerstone Study Piece
This is a great example showing the detail of a reed drilled hole. Use it to study the markings and patina of an authentic piece so you know when you see one drilled with a modern drill. This beautifully banded piece was surface found in Pickaway County Ohio.
Game Ball From Ohio-Reserved
This is a great example of Native American leasure activity. This hardstone sphere rolls surprisingly straight for being hand made probably more than a thousand years ago. It was never polished and shows the pecking marks and ground surfaces with a considerable amount of patina. You can definately tell it was man made.
Small Double Sided Mortar and Pestle
Here is a very nice and well used small mortar and pestle. It is hard to see the indentations on both sides of the mortar in the photos. The centers are about 1/4″ lower on the working areas. There is a nice polish from use in the middle of both sides and the outer edges still show the pecking from being shaped. This is a great and unusually small example. It was possibly made to be portable. The pestle was found a couple years later in the same field. That doesn’t necessarily mean they were ever a pair but they do seem to fit each others contour. The pestle has a nutting divot on it’s working side and has pecking from rough shaping still present. It also has a nice smoothing on the bottom from use. They display very well together.
Nice Corner Notched Point
This is probably a Kirk but it is possible it could be a Norton. Kirk is Early Archaic but a Norton is Middle Woodland Period. Not sure The flaking is more Archaic in appearence and it actually has a pretty good flute on one side but I think it is accidental. It does have a killer tip and a nice bevel.
Long Flat Banded Slate Pestle
It is amazing that this one survived considering all of the brushes with farm equipment that it has had waiting to be recovered. It appears to have been used both on the flat side and on the end. The pecking from it’s making process is still very visable.
