Stop. Or we will throw you in the kiln.

Frankly, I think we finally have the justification we need to close down the border for good and build a wall. Call in the SWAT archaeologists.

Border Patrol gives pottery to Forest Service? Why not give it to the U.S. Pottery Agency?

Came in to say the same thing. When we were kids we'd spend a lot of time playing out in the desert and going arrowhead hunting; just walk around for a few hours around an arroyo or playa and you could easily fill your pockets. Pottery was so common you didn't bother to pick it up unless it was painted. Unbroken arrowheads and turquoise beads were the real prizes. Finding an intact pot very rare; unless it was found in a cave it was assumed you were a digger, which is illegal without a permit. We came across many sites where there was clearly digging going on; it was mostly minor stuff but we found one place where someone had brought in a loader or backhoe. So many pieces of similar pottery so close together... you knew it was a pretty nice site that probably had a lot of intact stuff until the jackass came along and destroyed it.

Accidentally the whole discovery?
 
2012-10-10 01:03:41 PM
Subby should go be an hero.

I hope they the whole thing.

I found a prehistoric cave in NM when I was 13, had all kinds of cool stuff in it.
the ranch owners sent out a whole arch. team from the university.
It's kinda of a secret place, because it's right off a hiking trail.

WelldeadLink: Border Patrol gives pottery to Forest Service? Why not give it to the U.S. Pottery Agency?


The 'Potters', as they call themselves, technically do not exist. They are a secret branch of the government, fighting a shadow war that's almost two centuries old. They are the dying wish of Abraham Lincoln, and they are formed by the most experienced and grizzled veterans from all branches of the military and defense department.

Dad and I had to stop traveling around to the different forts and fields in the Southeast back in the early 90s when the state started threatening amateur archeologists like us. Moving arrowheads, pottery, etc. is really frowned upon and, I think, illegal here.

Spelling in shards, too.

KILN?
What self respecting, pre-columbian American used a kiln?
 
2012-10-10 01:25:07 PM
It's "sherds".
 
2012-10-10 01:27:05 PM
Conjugation - how do it work?
 
2012-10-10 01:27:13 PM
It would be interesting if someone in British Columbia found one of these:

This is the coolest bit we found, but the picture doesnt do it justice. All sorts of indentations on it. There were maybe a dozen like this.

Luckily, the ancients never understood this concept of imaginary lines in the sand.

I wouldn't put your personal info like that online -- Palm prints can lead to theft identity
 
2012-10-10 01:40:57 PM
Did anybody else notice that it says, "discovery" in the headline?
 
2012-10-10 01:43:41 PM
Do not use the ancient pottery for target practice.

When I lived in NM some years ago an old (pre-pueblo) medicine bag was found near Cerrillos that contained some "usual" items but also contained plant matter and feather that were not indigenous to the area and came from way down in South America somewhere. Some plants in the bag were unidentifiable.
 
2012-10-10 02:08:44 PM
Has anyone really been far even as discovery to use even go want to do look more like?
 
2012-10-10 02:14:13 PM

When the border patrol agents aren't accidentally shooting each other? Oh, I have missed something. I knew I should have been dedicating more of my time to FARK!
 
2012-10-10 03:25:01 PM
Is it bad that I might have a collection of stuff like this from my hunting expeditions around the South West???
 
2012-10-10 03:25:25 PM
One thing is for SURE. Ain't none of that shiat older than 6,000 years

Amiright?

ACTUALLY, it's "potsherds" if you are going to try and correct someone...

/all are actually acceptable, shard, sherd, potsherd...

I always admire 'em and leave 'em alone.

Shard is for glass, sherd or potsherd is pottery.
