I have found what appears to be paleo indian artifacts on my property

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I have found several craved heads, carved bone some tools a bone weapon and a wooden handel that would have been a weapon. I live in Minnesota

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

This area was always used by the Native Americans for a summer camp. There is one of those odd trees that Natives made to mark a place just 4 miles out of town
