Artifacts, Iowa.

A bird point I was lucky enough to find.
A Madison Triangle, 2 broken Madison triangles, and a nice broken piece of pottery.

A thumb scraper and a broken spear.
I was sick with a 101 degree fever this weekend.  Yup, I was pretty much worthless.  I basically sat on my porch and looked at flowers and birds for hours at a time with a thermometer stuck in my mouth.  You can be sick inside or sick outside.  I chose to be sick outside.  Good times.

Because of my 24 hour flu, I wasn't able to get much done so the blog today is a catch up entry.  I found these artifacts about a month ago and failed to post them in a timely fashion.  I think they're all pretty great and I'm especially proud of my pink bird point arrowhead.  I found all of these pieces in fields that were tilled.

I hope you guys had a good weekend.


  1. I'm sorry you were sick! The bottom piece of rock in the second picture looks like a triscuit. Oh, you said it was broken pottery. It must have been a vessel that was used to store triscuits :)

  2. I thought it was a pretty cool piece of pottery. You can see the design impressions the maker made.

    Yeah, Jane was one sick puppy. I slept, ate, slept, stared, fell asleep again, did it all over the next day.
