Native American Pottery?
« on: January 11, 2018, 07:05:02 AM »

My bit of research lead me to believe this could be a piece of Native American pottery. Someone I know that knows a lot more about this type of stuff said he believed it was too. What do you guys think?

Thanks Carl! I will try! Unfortunately I found that years ago, but I know exactly where I found it.

If you do, look for other artifacts. You might want to use a sifter with 1/4 inch screen.   Years after the natives moved/died out, the colonial folks ransacked their encampments. leaving broken pots and steatite bowls, also they raided for the left over seeds, like corn, beans, squash, tobacco.
