    I know they dont look like much, but they both have worked edges. This is also the stone locally used. Once cleaned up they looked better.

    Great find! We used to find arrowheads every time the fields got worked up, but not so much anymore.

    Yeah those are neat! They look like quartz to me which doesn't keep a good edge.

    Sort of makes you wonder who was there, when and what were they doing. One point could be a missed shot. Maybe two. But more could mean an encampment of some kind.

    There's a spot where I grew up that was a known annual meeting area. Lots of points found there.

    Any idea what the land was historically used for?

    We find these pretty regular on the Little Satilla. I have a friend who lives a few miles away that finds them regularly too.
