I have been spending a lot of time out searching for artifacts and finding mostly just broken pieces and fragments. My best find from Memorial Day weekend was this nice thin intact quartz Wading River point, my first whole arrowhead from Rhode Island. The water in the background is the Atlantic Ocean. Nicely made thin quartz points like this were really difficult to make, quartz is a very hard material to work that most modern flintknappers won't touch.
When I got out of my car first thing Sunday morning I was a little disappointed, there didn't seem to be much new exposure and everything looked more or less the same as it did the last time I went there. I don't know if it didn't rain heavily there Saturday, or if it just wasn't enough rain to wash out much new stuff. Despite this I still spent two and a half hours carefully searching. I spotted this little piece of broken quartz and stapped a picture before picking it up, really expecting it to be just another chip or flake, having found very many of those in this place where Indians must have lived long ago.
