Ancestors of the Mohican and Abenaki people were creating tools for cutting, drilling and scraping, and leaving evidence of this work in the ground near Little Rock Pond, VT. Archaeologists/Flintknapper Jeff (grinning, below) and Dave have been discovering them with the help of dig happy volunteers. Excavations have yielded points, commonly referred to as arrowheads, and flakes, chips from the shaping process known as flintknapping. Archeologists have also been able to identify sitting platforms, rounded stones used as hammers and chert, another type of material used for tool making. Most of these artifacts are believed to be about 10,000 years old!
