A buddy of mine is always coming up with pottery he finds out looking for arrowheads and such. I had never found any pottery before so I talked him into letting me tag along this past Monday. I became a pottery finding machine. I found a few flint chunks and flakes, and one broken tip to a point, but nothing else really. He said he never found but a few points in the site with all the pottery. But it was something new to me...neat seeing the designs in it and such.

A lot of the pieces I see are stamped with corn cob. Others look like pine straw, where they wrapped the pot during firing. If you break a piece and look at the middle it will have little white specks. That is muscle shell they put in it for tempering. There is a site close to me where you can't walk without stepping on it. It is only about 250 to 1500 years old from the mississippian period. Cool finds!!!!
