Made some tools from deer bone.  Pictured are some ulna bone awls which are also great for flint knapping, they make really fine serrations and notches.  Also some regular awls and bone needles and a fish hook made from a deer toe bone. I polished and sanded them using the scouring rush also called horse tail reed.

Heritage Park in Santa Fe Springs CA. is a great place to take the family, bring a picnic lunch and learn a little something about the Gabrielino/Tongva people.  They also have a full sized train “Kids can even ring the bell”.  And a really cool museum.

 

 

 

Prehistoric Fossils October 26, 2012

I have been collecting fossils for some time now, to hold something in my hand that has been preserved in stone for millions of years is simply amazing.  For those of you that don’t know, the word fossil means “dug out of the ground.”  Here are some that I have purchased over the years.

This is a tooth from an Equus or Prehistoric Horse- Pleistocene – Recent

This is a tooth from a Prehistoric Bison. Pliocene – Recent

Tooth from Three-Toed Horse (Nannippus peninsulatus) Pliocene Era

Tooth from Prehistoric Ground Sloth (Megalonyx) Pleistocene Era.

Fossil Crinoid stems (Sea Lillies) and Gastropod shells from ancient sea snails.

Trilobite fossils (Species Phacops) and Ammonite fossils from England.

Fossil ferns (Pennsylvanian Era) and Polished Echinoids (sea urchins) from Morocco.

 

My Favorite Stone Age Documentaries May 2, 2012

I always enjoy watching a good documentary.   Here are a few of my favorites that I have watched over the years.  If you have a chance check them out.

BBC Video- Walking With Cavemen.

History Channel- Clash of the Cavemen

History Channel- Journey To 10,000 B.C.  The Real Story of Prehistoric Man’s Fight For Survival

Nova- America’s Stone Age Explorers  Where did the first Americans come from?

Discovery Channel- Ice Age Columbus Who were the first Americans?

Discovery Channel- Iceman Hunt For A Killer  (About Otzi the Iceman)

Discovery Channel- L.A. 10,000 B.C.  (About Los Angeles during the Ice Age.)

Also check Netflix if you have it, a lot of great films on Prehistoric animals.  Cave of Dreams is also a good one to watch.

Take Care.

Made this one a few days ago, added the serrations today.  A little thick at the base, but I like it.

Played around with watercolor years ago, I think these pics I made came out pretty good.   Sorry if the scans are a little blurry.
