Easter Find

Found during a grown-up Easter hunt yesterday. This would be classified as a quartzite “chopper” probably associated with the “Savannah River” people of the terminal archaic. This type of stone tool confused early North American archaeologists who had been familiar with similar Acheulean hand axes in Europe which had been shaped by much earlier Homo Erectus. To date, archaeologists have not found evidence for homo erectus in the new world. But more importantly, I’ve been able to use the term “homo erectus” now three times in this post.
