  1. Thanks Robert. Missouri State is close, but I probably won’t bother them with it. Most likely Osage tribe and 200+ years old. It could be much older I suppose. We find pieces every so often, but don’t go out of our way to look. The “looking” is best after the fields have been turned and we have a good rain.

    It has been about 10 years since we’ve located a complete one. Most of the complete ones found by the last three generations are back in town at my son’s house.

    These were either broken by the tilling or were “factory seconds” when made and we just ran across their trash pile.

    Could be much older? Archaeologists have pieced together a Neolithic flint arrowhead for the first time in 4,500 years - revealing the finest Stone Age arrowhead ever found in Britain. Click on the link then go to the YouTube link to see the four and a half thousand year old arrow head. https://www.reading.ac.uk/news-archive/press-releases/pr669518.html

    How does one date an arrowhead or flint? Is it a matter of recording and dating the layer of soil that it was found in? Or maybe what was found with it? Are there distinctive styles or chipping techniques that are accepted as being, say, from 200 years ago as opposed to 4,000 years ago? I think your collection is very cool.

    They probably found the sell by date.

    If flint and chemically similar rocks have previously been heated to 400° (in a hearth or other fire) the date they were heated can be determined using thermoluminescence. And yes, dating the layers of material in which the flint was located is also used to date the rock.

  8. I found this reconstruction of Neanderthal Krijn interesting:

    I could swear I worked with that guy years ago.
