Nutting Stone
Nutting Stone

This is a great example of a nutting stone that also shows signs of use as a hammerstone. Both sides are deeply indented. The tips of the triangles shape are heavily nicked and chipped showing signs of use as a hammerstone. These pitted rocks were used for various jobs. The indentations made a great spot to grip the stone to use as a hammer stone to possibly chip flint for making tools. It was probably also used to hold the spindle of a fire starter. The indentations were also used to grind and crack nuts. (thus the name) These were used by the First Peoples throughout ancient American history so it could be 300 to 11,000 years old.

Flaked Hoe
Flaked Hoe

Here is a nicely flaked hoe. It still shows the outer core from the flint nodule from which it was made. It was fashioned mainly by percussion flaking with a little pressure flaking along the working edges. The edges show some smoothing from use wear. It was probably from the Late Archaic Period when the Native Americans first started planting crops in Indiana around 3,000 to 4,000 years ago. It was legally recovered while surface hunting in Miami County.

Small Double Sided Mortar and Pestle
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.
