I did more than just find fossils this weekend. While digging through sand and rock I happened upon something metal and heavy. I pulled the object out of the ground and realized that I found an old axe head. I have no idea how old the thing is, it's heavily pitted and covered in rust. The wooden axe handle has long since rotted away.
We made a hot fire and threw the blade in in an attempt to burn away the old, chunky rust (and yes, this does work in many cases). It sort of worked. But when I took it out of the fire it still looked like an old ass rusty axe blade. It's shelf worthy, however, and really pretty cool.
