here we see an array of my most ancient of tools, rhomboids,pentangular points,blades and various scrapers. most are discolored and heavily weathered black flints with tiny fossils of sea life embedded within the stone. i searched for Clovis tools and didn't see many matches...then i searched Pre-Clovis and saw many likenesses. in a few here i even saw them to resemble old world Neanderthal tools. I really think that the Ohio Experts should look to Texas and Pennsylvania, to name two states, that really do have the most ancient kinds of stone age relics, and consider the possibility that the first Americans most likely are a great deal older than first glance proved. I would be bold enough to say that Man has been here on our continent and in our southern continent as long as in old Europe and Africa. i urge them to keep digging. these were all found at scattered locations in the river valleys of the Licking and Muskingum rivers in Zanesville Ohio by me. the focal point where i find the most relics is where the two rivers meet. i have not found ones like these going up into higher elevations at all. going up hill from the valley reveals more granite,limestone,lighter flints,and sandstone/quartzite/ material tools. in theory i would say that the more long lived species of Man here controlled the waters in strategic locations. i have found a huge cache of the more ancient relics at Dillon beach and at Dillon Falls as well with much more crude and larger sized tools....i have not found any arrowheads there yet...mostly what i see are unifaced blades and rhomboids of flint and similar to flint material, with palm sized smoking pipes made of siltstone and quartzite..they look like skull effigy at first until i see the port for the inhale drilled from the side,going to the biggest eye of the skull. as well i find the black flint in piles in these valley locations closer to water. i've also found many many relics made of hematite there in animal forms. i would say that for a period the more primitive Man kept the valleys secured until the more modern Man's numbers were large enough to over throw the balance of power by the theory of your choice. i also find lots of rock art samples seeming very crude and extremely more primitive than what the last 25,000 years has produced in America naturally. these items relate in a lot of ways to old world European stone age and in some ways to African rock art/tools from even earlier times in Mans history.. my pictures tell the tale. Are we smart enough to read it?


 preclovis,Neanderthals
Levallois
 Mousterian
lithic TOOLS AMERICA.
 look up these key words,

AHH YES INDEED..... I see Pentangular points of the preclovis here....5 sided points needing further study by experts. Contact me with comments or e-mail if you want to see the real things here for yourself.



very primitive tools looking to cross between neanderthal and pre-clovis works to me but i am no expert.

very thick triangle.is rounded off by weathering. i assume it was a projectile

these are again. so ancient that the shinyness of the flint is gone and faded. they are very crude and irregular looking to be older than what is known for this part of Ohio

more crude primitive points. very ancient indeed. some are Pentangular here. the same have been found at other preclovis sites dating back to something like 50,000 years ago.....in America....it challenges some archaeologists beliefs but intrigues others'.

more rhomboids and crude little scrapers,tiny points,unifaced blades,all black flints here

good example of the points i have to help identify

the one in center on the right is hard black flint tool knife/scraper/multi tool for meat. it looks neanderthalish to me. i know that no skeletons were ever found here of them but that doesnt mean that their technology is not here...people converged,fought,lived beside and mated and traveled together between the species. our DNA proves it....could be possible this was from another time all together.......

Ahhhhh...rhomboid tools...could be ancient bruins....nice finds.people overlook them because they are not all pretty nice delicate arrowheads that jump out and bite you like snakes lol. it takes a keener eye to find the good stuff. anyone can find beautiful flints.........

Black flint animal effigy stones

Here I have several pieces of Stone Age Zanesville Ohio Flint works. Most are animal effigy stones, similar in variety to Relics Found at Buckeye Lake at another dig site. I have no idea how old they are but they are super cool and worthy of discussion. Click this link to see the Buckeye Lake Reliccs straight from the source! I Saved the image from The Archaeology of Portable Rock Art Blog site to show example, not to infringe.

This is a black flint fish effigy stone. Its fin has a tool edge, so it was a handy scraper tool as well.

This is the reversed side of the fish.

Top is what i believe to be a snapping turtle head. directly below is a much smaller stone of same material with the same kind of mouth. To its left is another turtle head looking stone. Bottom is a small flint turtle effigy stone. Its tail end is left, head and front foot is right.

Close up of the small turtle effigy stone.

Close up of the small turtle head effigy showing mouth and face details.

Close up of the larger turtle head showing full face detail.

Two bird effigy stones, a drill, an awl. The bird effigy are in center, the drill is on top, the awl is on bottom. the awl seems to be the oldest of all pieces shown. note that the flying bird effigy on the left even has feather details on its wing. the opposite effigy has an eye spot.

The awl close up.

The flying bird has feathery details on its wing.



These appear to be predatory animal effigy stones but I am unsure. Left looks like a lion or tiger head, Right looks like a bear, Bottom looks like another feline.

Self standing animal effigy with pointed snout, nubs for legs and short body. Maybe a Hog of some kind. There are also face details but is hard to view in jpg form.

Opposite side of suspected Hog effigy stone.


I cannot determine what animal this one is but you can see the basic form of  a self standing animal stone relic.


I think it is a lizard after viewing other pics online of lizard effigy stones. Its head looks left. It also has a front leg seen here. It may not be. I am not an expert at identifying. It resembles a turtle too.


I really think this is a skull effigy piece of Coshocton Black Flint. It is large and self standing. At first i thought it was just a core until i cleaned it up and looked closer.

Two other larger artifacts with the skull effigy. Left looks to be a human figure with a head and body... it also looks like an owl piece found in Missouri at this link.http://portablerockart.blogspot.com/2012/02/route-66-zoo-site-announced-in-missouri.html Right has possibility of being anything,it kind of has features of Paleo art human head sculpture, further examination is required. It is self standing as you see.
here is a peek at the owl sculpture from Missouri so you can see side by side. Credit goes to Stacy Dodd for this pic.
note the head shape and shape of wing and tail feathers in this owl. then look at mine below. very similar indeed.

Close up of suspected human or owl figure.

This looks like a bird to me. Tail feathers point  to the right. those tail feathers could be a nose and mouth too of a human or creature, so hard to tell with this stone age stuff.



Here is our friend owl in black flint. is different from the previous owls. whole other stone here lol. The full face details are visible, even the pupils. What a great find.

The owl is self standing.

This stone age critter has 4 nubs for legs, a round head, high back,and fossils for spots. I am not certain what kind of animal it is.

Its reverse.

The spotted critter held showing face details and its leg nubs.

This animal effigy has a smile.

Another self standing animal effigy. It could be a frog.

From this side itr looks like a bird too......

This is a frog effigy. the next pics will show it better.

The head of the frog rock.



This is the under belly of the frog rock showing legs.

Frog rock from above.

Ah yep, it's a frog.


Smaller animal effigy showing eye spot and head.

This is a stone age cardinal or blue jay.

Cardinal Jay looking at you.

Side of cardinal jay.

The front side of Cardinal Jay.


This is a slick shiny black flint scraper tool in likeness of a bear.
