CLIFF JACKSON'S VIRTUAL ARTIFACT EXTRAVAGANZA
I have picked up arrowheads all of my life as a dedicated field walker in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Being energetic and imaginative, I have cabineted thousands of points, axes, pipes and ornaments. I have also collected good relics from all over, and especially like tallied pendants and gorgets. If you have any for sale or trade, let me know. WELCOME TO AN ONLINE ALBUM OF A FEW OF MY RELIC FAVORITES.
MY NC PALEO POINTS
The red and white quartzite Clovis was my first personally found fluted point. It is fluted on the reverse, but I like the color on this side. The small Clovis tool on the bottom left and the large Ross County Clovis were found many years ago in Warren County, NC by Mr. Martin Fowler(deceased) of Rabbit Bottom. The Ross Co. has had the top 1 1/4" restored but is a killer-thin well made piece I'm proud to own. The jasper Clovis to the top right is my second fluted find-it's small but deadly! Below that, my best find of my lifetime- a super-rare fully fluted Cumberland that I found in 1996 in Moore County, NC. It is made of a local, heavily patinated silicified shale.
MOSS AGATE KNIFE found by Theo Hecht in Warren County NC many years ago while surface hunting with Phil Perkinson. It is made of highly translucent gold and blue moss agate, and features grinding below the unique hafting notches. It was purchased by Phil Perkinson at Mr. Hecht's sale in 1986, and I purchased it from Phil. This point was displayed for many years with Hecht's collection in the Landmark Hotel in Norlina NC
