Scrapers, Hammer Stones, Grinding Stones, Bowls, Plates, Pottery Shards and Other Fun Stuff

When I walk the Sampson County North Carolina fields looking for arrowheads, I often find other artifacts that were used by the Original Native Americans around their camp sites.   Stone tools are most of what I have found because they have survived the elements for hundreds and thousands of years.  In  the gallery shown here, there are hammer stones, grinding stones, scrapers, pottery shards, cores, stone plates, nutting bowls, grinding bowls, and clay pipe stems and bowls.  I hope you enjoy looking at them and trying to figure out how they would have been used.
