That makes sense. My best friend in Grade school and Junior high is an archeologist. I am thinking of trying to find him and ask him. I have not talked to him in 40 years.
I am rethinking all the "family Lore" we were told growing up. As I said my Grandpa found "graves 2 forties ( a little over 1/4 mile from where I found this) He did not find a lot, I believe it was only a handful or two. My Dad told me they were a "cheap" tribe and did not bury lots of good with their dead. Based on what age this arrowhead seems to be.
While the sea levels were lower back then, the receding glaciers here and north of here back then raised the river levels considerably, I think my home would have a lake on three sides of it. a great place to live back then. Plus there would have been large cold weather animals here to hunt. The "burial" site is about the right distance from here for them to leave their dead. They would have done scaffold burials back then.
I think the "graves" grandpa found were actually collapsed scaffolds and they were only buried as deep as the earth covered them in the thousands of years. The only other burial site I know of in the area is about 2 two 2 1/2 miles north of here on Elk Lake. (Cluckies did you know there was a burial site there? It is were the "pavilion and public beach use to be.)
I am thinking that is from a later time period. ( again just guessing and could be complete BS. until I find someone to confirm it.)
I did not know that, but that is pretty cool. I still think you should talk to the archaeologists about it, I don't think they would shut down your farm over one arrowhead? (but don't blame me if they do) lol

One of my leghorn hens is in full molt and being a bit sluggish yesterday and today. she sits around with her feathers kinda fluffed a bit. she is plenty energetic to complain if i try to pick her up. I think i will try to give her some high energy food while she is still in good shape. I have some cans of old roy dog food i was thinking of feeding her. my dogs dont particularly care for it so it just sits on the shelf. any concerns about feeding that to a hen?
They add extra salt to dog food and salt is a concern for chickens, yes.
Don't know about dog food. I heard you can give them cat food, tuna, and other meat. I haven't tried the catfood, My cat only likes dry catfood, no wet, no soft, no human food. I've had this cat since he was a kitten (he is 15 now) and he will only eat dry Purina cat chow. Turns his nose up at everything else. Also, my chickens turn their nose up at tuna
Here's my Katobi -
He is a fatty.
His favorite place to be is in a box... He is in a box right now as I type this.
