Description: Outstanding Example of a Massive Lost Lake - This Lost Lake is one of the Largest Examples known.  It is not highly unusual to see examples of the Dovetail or Hardin typologies exceed 7 inches, but for Lost Lakes, it is VERY rare to see any exceed 5 1/2 inches or so.  This Beast measures 6 7/8 inches.  It is VERY thin, with very little secondary flaking.  The exact recovery location, I have not been able to trace down, but I have been able to backtrack it to Paducah, KY in the early 1960's.  Sometime between 1960 and 1962 Boyce Yates traded a coin and stamp collection for a group of artifacts that were held by Hoskins Coin Shop in Paducah, KY.  He took them back to Mayfield, KY and framed them in Oval, Bubble Glass frames no later than 1963.  ( I confirmed this by the printing on brown Paper bags for the Youngblood Bros. Stores placed in the back of the frames for spacing with the Youngblood family of Mayfield. )  These framed artifacts hung in Mr. Yates home from then till March of 2017.  From what I can find out, the group of artifacts were sold or pawned to Hoskins Coin Shop prior to 1962 or so.  I fell like the Lost lake was recovered somewhere within a 50 or so radius of Paducah, KY.  Currently in our personal collection.

Bennett's "Avoiding Reproduction & Altered Ancient Indian Arrowheads")

Description: Saint Louis Green Chert Frame # 1 -  This 36 inch Frame is all one Lithic material, a nodular chert found mostly in three KY counties but distributed widley.  I have a piece found by an Amish kid in Huron County, Ohio, a piece from the LBL area of Western KY (thanks Pete Kurlas), a piece from Coffee County, TN.  About the only direction that it did not seem to travel far was East for I have yet to see a piece from WV, VA, NC, or SC.  It was used by Prehistoric Peoples of ALL Archaeological periods!  Because it is a nodular chert, you will seldom see a piece anywhere close to six inches.

Description: Adzes, Celts, and Dover Chisel - The Dover Chisel is 6 1/4 inches with a 1/4 inch wide bit and the sides of the chisel are highly ground.  It was found by Rodney Tyree in Lincoln County, KY.  All of the Hardstone are from Central KY and mostly from Madison County.  The Hopewell Celt, center bottom, was a personal find while surface hunting with my friend John Gibson.  The Adze, bottom Right was a personal find while hunting with John Gibson in May 2003.  The Adze just above it was found by Shane Pendergrass on the same site about 30 feet from where I found mine when I took him hunting there while he was visiting the next year.  Several years later I received a package in the mail from Shane.  Inside was the Adze and a note saying that they needed to be together!  The Adze above that was found by Jimmy Taylor in Madison County, Ky.  The totally polished Hematite Celt in the center is one of the finest I have handled and was in the Roy Hathcock collection and pictured in Who's Who #5 on Roy's Hematite Shelf, 2nd from right.

Description: Some Local Celts - The two on the left and the far right bottom are of Cotton Rock in a Celt form, which is rare around here where 90% made of this material are Adzes.  The one at far right was found by Earl VanWinkle near Waco, KY.  The long Hardstone Hopewell Celt, 2nd from the left was found by Derrick Hensley while hunting with his Grandfather, Steve Riley, in a field near the Berea Water Plant in 1988 or 1989 and is 5 1/2 inches.  The Hopewell Celt, 2nd from the right was found by Jimmy Taylor in Madison County, KY.  The un-polished Breathitt Celt I purchased from the finder locally in 2004.  The Polished Breathitt Celt in the tip right in 2017, I think.  The spade or Celt, center right, was supposed to be local, but is a material that I am not familiar with unless it is a light green Breathitt.  The cortex is right for Breathitt.  It is almost 7 inches long.

Description: Clay Cooking Stones - I purchased this neat Clay "Cooking Stone" from Rocky Hall many years ago.  It was found in shell heap near Clarksville.  Clark County, Indiana. An interesting note about many of these "cooking stones" from the Poverty Point Site when discovered several years ago in that at least SOME of them have a river pebble baked inside of them.  To me this was an evolution of technology in that the baked clay insulated the stone from the fire while heating, then after placed in a pot with a porridge or stew, the rock inside would keep dispersing heat for a longer period!  This example definitely has a stone inside!
