The group of artifacts above and the 4 immediately below are from the collection of Anthony Longsworth, and are all personal finds except for the first pipe which was found by a friend of his fathers.   The Steatite effigy pipe was a surface find in the mountains of Southeastern KY.  (although rubbed down so that the hole will show, the dirt has never been cleaned from the holes)  The exceptional Wheeler was found in a rock-shelter on his property in Laurel Co., KY and is made of Boyle Chert.

(above left:)  Hayden Bybee, Terry Tucker, Mitch Fink, and Eddie Rassenfoss discuss a piece.   (above right:)  Recent cache find by Mike Bullock of Lexington, KY.  Here is the interesting part of this cache...... Mike found two of the pieces on the surface in a plowed field and brought them to show me.... he had already decided that they were a cache.... being so like in workmanship and material.  We discussed the possibilities of there being more there and he asked me about probe rods.   The result of this was that Mike went out and built a probe and went back the find location and after a couple of hours was able to find the other 5 pieces together in a small area.   All are like in material and patination.

We had a VERY good turnout for the evening with a lot of new people dropping by.   There were many fine artifacts on display and for sale.   John & I want to thank everyone who attended for helping making our March meeting such a success!  Hope to see you all there next month.
