Flint Points and one Small Hematite Celt

from near 33GU218 (Day's Knob)

 
These artifacts were kindly donated by Helen Fogle of Old Washington, Ohio, whose children had collected them from at and near the surface of  low-lying terrain near the hilltop site.  They date from the Early Archaic to the Middle Woodland Period, roughly 10,000 to 1500 years BP.

Mrs. Fogle and her brother John Laughman, whose grandparents owned the site in the early twentieth century, have been instrumental in discrediting state ("Ohio History Connection") archaeologists' adamant but clearly unfounded assertion that the rather obvious prehistoric earthwork at the site must somehow be the result of recent strip mining or quarrying.
