    A colleague of my wife is an archeologist who is called on whenever there is a find of Native American and paleo-American artifacts here on Long Island.

    She studied the rock and determined that it was a pottery shaping stone and showed where the satining had occoured on the stone over many years of use. The stone was between 1 and 3,000 years old!! My son was givin a state form for ancient American artifacts that he was required to fill out but was able to keep the tool if he wanted. We still have it but he's considering donating it to the local

    Native American museum. How cool is that?






    What Tribe used to live over on Long Island ? Probably an Algonquin ethnic people.

        I found an old Civil war uniform in a wall when I was running a snake pulling wiring thru . Was all moldy and filthy.

          My mom and dad were walking on the beach in San Juan Puerto Rico a few years ago, and my dad stumbled onto a really cool arrowhead. He gave it to my daughter, and it is up on her dresser with a narrative from my dad. It has never been looked at by any experts to tell us anything at all about it.

            Was it made of obsidian or flint. I bet, an expert can tell you if it's recent or old.The Taino Indian's ( an Arawak ethnic people) used to inhabit Puerto Rico before European's with African slaves arrived there.
            Remember, before the North or South America was invaded, the islands of the Caribbean was the first foot hold of the invasion of the America's. One war leader in the region was named Tahueyee, he led a resistance on that island for 30 years until, like in the case of all Native resistance, disease ravaged his Nation. Later, he fled to Cuba to join his ethnic cousins in their fight for freedom after most of his people were wiped out by the Spanish in the 1493-1513 time period.
