Archaeology Find: Metate Confirmed
The exciting news today is that during this pandemic Jim Carn has found a real mystery item. We have sent pictures to Gary Fogelman and at this point, he thinks it might be the real thing pending closer examination. He is also mystified about the hole.
Jim wrote last night that the hole appears elbow-shaped. The cursory look that I had appeared to me like the drillings were from both sides and meeting imperfectly. We are at present going to arrange a meeting for a second look. Because of the weight of this thing Jim has requested a trip to his house. Gary if you want to drive to see this artifact lets name a day and time. We can keep social distancing.
This might be either a great addition to Jim’s landscaping or a museum piece.
I’ll keep you posted.
