AUTHENTIC PREHISTORIC PALEO AMERICAN ARTIFACTS AND LITHIC MATERIALS
WELCOME TO PALEOROCKS
exploring the history of the first Americans and offering legally
obtained authentic relics celebrating their existence for your wonder
and imagination. We concentrate on items
that the Paleo
American might have carried in his tool kit such as uniface blades,
awls, blade cores, adzes and other items they would have used in daily
Paleorocks guarantees authenticity and allows a
standard AACA evaluation period for all artifacts sold.
PALEOROCKS Certificate of Authenticity is also available with each artifact sale. Any
artifacts sold are guaranteed to paper from any of the major evaluators like Jackson.
We also have high grade lithic
materials obtained from the original Paleo quarries for those of
you who enjoy knapping. I have found that knapping helps me connect with how
the first Americans lived and have a better understanding of the stone they valued to survive. The primary stone used by the native Americans in Northwest Alabama is Fort Payne Chert which encompasses varieties such as Blue/Black, Caramel/Tan, Buffalo River and Horse Creek just to name the major types. Other subtypes are known as Blueberry and Bangor which are variations on the Classic Blue/Black. There is also a Quartzite material which is similar to materials found in Arkansas. Fort Payne material covers a vast variety of great knapping materials.
first Americans came here looking for
better climates, more game, easier living just like we still do
today. They found what they were seeking when they came up the
waterways from the Gulf of Mexico and the Mobile Delta, up the Tombigbee
and Sipsey until they came to the state divide and looked over into the
valley now known as the Tennessee Valley. Here they lived and
They found weapons grade
flint, game in abundance, a relatively mild climate, many streams and hollows to
explore and areas that would make it easy to corner and kill game.
15,000 years later we have the evidence of their lives to
examine. Their flint quarries and the hills and hollows where
they lived and hunted and of course their wonderful relics by which
they survived and populated a new world.
