Finishing some plowing today
plowed up this
closer look,cannon ball, or junk iron ? this is the second one I have plowed up,I was plowing along Darmstadt creek when I saw this also found a couple more arrow points but they were broken.
I started looking for artifacts when I plow this field,it started a few years back,I noticed when I plowed in that area I was plowing up pieces of burnt and charcoaled wood,it looked like cypress which don't rot very easy and alot of these old homesteads were built outa cypress ,they would cut them along these creek bottoms and the guadalupe river and use mules to haul em to the saw mill.
I figure there was an old homestead where I been plowing ,maybe burnt down years ago.
Maybe this ole cannon ball was something an old homesteader traded for in town and brought it home.Or maybe the army was fighting indians along this old creek bottom.
I have a neighbor that has some archeologists digging along a fence line of mine,I always stop along the road and shoot the breeze with em,ask them what they are finding etc.
I dont reckon this ole stuff is worth much but kinda interesting to find it.....................good luck
