In a previous discussion I was repeatedly told that the above was just another meaningless rock among a pile of meaningless rocks.
Reverse side of stone is below (broken off pieces are on ground beside it in pic)

I had found it toppled over on a red clay mound that was about 20 feet from the source of an artesian spring, and about 200 feet from a creek.

Slightly below it (on the wall of the mound) was something else I was told was a meaningless rock:

After digging it up, it looks like the next pic...
I interpreted this as an exagerated head effigy with an exaggerated nose which while embedded like a picture hung on the mound 4' up it was pointed straight towards the rising sun. It has a sharply cut triangle for the eye. The stone in it's entirety may or may not be in exact original condition from hundreds of years ago. This is exactly as I found it after cutting through weeds and trees that were hiding it.

I'm told ancient people in the area "flattened" their skulls, and also were big into reincarnation concepts. Here is a picture I took at beginning of the dig (still long before I knew anything about this) and I interpret it to be showing a morphing into a wolf in the afterlife. That "2nd jaw" part was buried, and it seemed shaped and fitted, so that was my thought process. There were other stones below it and behind it, but they seemed unworked or perhaps just part of support as the clay may have been softer when these extremely heavy stones were first placed. Must have taken multiple people to place this.

Some evidence for skull flattening as a thing of beauty was found at local museum:

Also in the same lighting the "chunky game" pieces I found are identical to the museum's exhibit when placed on glass above it.

As for the radiation... Background: I had brought a bucket of interesting rocks into my sunroom and the residential radon gas detector had alarmed. So I put the detector in the bucket and left it there covered for a couple of days then heard it alarming at a very high level. Next week I have a better detector arriving as I don't trust this one at all. The rocks in bucket were all found not far from the site.

In a prior post I was told none of these were carved:

Ok, so I kept digging, because I trusted the experts and felt it was safe to use the mound of dirt to fill in some sink holes.... But then I started finding other things in the area, such as this sampling I displayed:

And a random horseshoe:

A random civil war bullet:

A random boulder moved with excavator:

And whatever this thing is:

Anywho, my house would actually make a phenomenal ghost story due to it's history, even before the discovering of the site. And nope, not digging any further.

I'll get the metal detector back out and see if I can find anymore bullets or canon balls and maybe posts some more pics later. Also curious to see what happens with my new radiation detector when it gets here...
"CT007-F Radiation and Radioactive Contamination Detector - Complete Alpha, Beta, Gamma Detection - Bluetooth 4.0"
With all the uranium in the water it's not a bad idea to not entirely trust your source. Plenty of cheap detectors to check yourself.

Hmm, the last pic, that “rock” should really be reported to the authorities.

Looks like the head is part of some sort of statue made long ago. The indians may have molded it from special clays too, but they did chip at things a lot to make stuff.

The first picture is probably a marker used by an ancient people. They used flat stones standing up as markers to guide people or they drew stuff or carved stuff on them. This same practice was used in Europe and Upper asia and to a smaller extent in the middle east.

The oblong square rocks may have flint in them or are chirt, used for making fires. I had one like that here, it had what looked like a melted part on it and while breaking it with an axe, I saw lots of sparks, it was flint, probably hauled here by Indians from down near Flint Michigan. I had a bump that was full of crystal rocks, maybe fifty of them. They were made of chert and quartzite, I hauled some into the basement and toyed with them to learn how to start fires with them. Just rub two together with some dry moss and it starts smoking. I didn't feel like building a fire in my basement though, I just got the smoking moss.

I have some diabase tools, ground and shaped rocks that were hardened by fire. They liked to shape rocks here, who? I don't know, neither do the Indians, they just recognize the tools and said they still make them that way in their cultural toolmaking that was passed on for many generations.

I also have my avatar, it is a piece of carved permineralized bone. I have no clue how long ago that was made. By studying dating of this stuff, I estimated some of it might be two thousand years old based on depth found. But then again, maybe it was buried, some of the stuff was only eighteen inches deep into the hardpan. That is much newer, maybe six hundred years or so. Some little artifacts, in groups of three or four, were only about a eight to twelve inches deep into the hardpan, maybe three or four hundred years old. I don't know how deep the topsoil and humus was on top, that was scraped off and I never paid attention to the thickness of that.

You have some weird shaped rocks too. What part of the country are you from? Is that skull from your place or is that a reference picture from the net? They find skulls like that in South America and down by guatamala area.

Not quite sure if this OP is satire.

They are all rocks, except the last one which is made up.

Some of those rocks are common shapes used by cultures all over the world, they are found in areas where people lived. Most cultures made rock tools before iron was made available, not everyone had copper to work with either. Indians chopped wood, made boats, cleaned hides, cut meat, and ground bones and clays into powder to use in their pottery. They also ground grains and made all sorts of shaped tools to work with out of rocks locally found in the area. They made hammerstones and net weights that can be found on shores, they netted fish for a very long time.. He is just on an old settlement, nothing special. He will find all sorts of strange rocks, they may have been tools or just decorations lining trails.

I found lots here, evidently I am on an old Indian ceremonial site. The radiation is not uncommon, you can get that from mixing sand and salt together here, my geiger counter picks up radiation around areas of this locality.

Well, it doesn't have a brain anymore, so it isn't smart. and yes, a skull is a kind of rock.

I'll try to address all questions.

Location is not far from Etowah Mounds (Georgia), which is where I got the museum pic of the note on the wall about how they flattened their skulls.
The curator didn't disagree with me in regards to the Chunkey game piece I brought in, and some of their stuff was in worse condition that what I have.

I also haven't posted all the pics of everything I've found, just a current sample. Typically I'll create a line of questionable items and often it takes a good rain or sunshine or both before I realize what's beneath. It's a very efficient process when you're not in a hurry.

As for that very last pic, I greatly doubt someone found that anywhere on Earth. It only vaguely resembles certain skulls in Peru. I believe it was used as a joke somewhere, as it was here. :-) That would be cool to find wouldn't it? :-)

The mountain dew cans in pics were just for showing size in pics.
The top pic is hundreds of pounds in weight, and the one that was embedded in the side of the cliff was perhaps only approaching 200 pounds.

Also multiple ancient fishing weirs had been built throughout the creek.
Civil war also left many lead bullets on the ground.

Also, to be clear, not claiming anything is a fossil. They are indeed carved rocks...well at least some of them.

The first 2 pictures may be of a grave headstone.The rest may have been used to mark the grave(s). There are a lot of small unmarked graveyards scattered around that area. Most are old homestead family burial plots. Careful where and what you dig.
The bricks show to be at least modern , but may also have been part of a fireplace at one time.
The rocks most likely came from the river. You can find all kind of strange looking smoothed rock in the river. No , not carved or worked , river worn and polished.
Uranium ? Not according to the USGS site. There are places that were once used for open air trash dumps.
You must be new to Georgia or the area.
Have fun.

Me, new to Georgia? Son I grew up here. Between Radium Springs and surrounded by multiple places where industry polluted without restraint. I'm not sure if the military base ever gave a complete list of all the chemicals that got mixed in our water, but it remains a Superfund cleanup site for decades.

Yeah we had well-water so guess we were drinking loads of it. Probably why everyone in my family has had kidney failure or cancer or Alzheimer's. I have the remarkable ability to set off my Geiger counter with just my brain waves like I'm some sort of mutant. I don't give a damn if nobody believes it but I'm running through a number of tests and multiple detectors to get this as documented as possible before presenting this to anyone that's open minded enough to check it out. Also I mention it frequently on this site and others in the off chance some other person has this as well. My hunch is that we ALL DO. Not sure yet if other detectors will chirp on it like my current one does, (Radex One) which is why I'm getting a different one. It's a repeatable condition that seems to be an alert type reflex on sounds (somatic cortex activity) in which you weren't consciously aware the sound was about to happen. For instance, a.c. turns on then "chirp chirp", overhead plane then chirp chirp.

Anyhow, my message about people checking for uranium was more universal anyways, as it's greatly concentrated in certain states. Surely they give out notices of the hazards when they send out the tax bills there? That way you can be sued for child abuse for knowingly poisoning your children. Not sure why people live in such places, but I'm guessing it's some combination of apathy, greed, ignorance.
Also if you think you've consumed any lead (of course you have if in the U.S.) then you need more than a blood test, because your body mistakes it for calcium and stores it in your bones and around your brain. It's easy enough to test but you have fly out of the country to do it because the XrayFluoresence testing has been placed out of reach back in the 70's despite it being safe and inexpensive. Actually it might have brought the economy down due to people suing for the reason why 1 in 6 children here have learning disabilities, and of course it could also be used as a reason for victims "mental incompacity" cause of their crimes. A cell is much cheaper than a long term doctor for an incurable problem.

And as for Radon gas, yeah it'll kill you just the same. If you ever smoked in your life people and doctors would claim that's the cause of your lung cancer despite radon having a far greater destruction of your lungs. Same situation with all health issues, it never gets blamed on pollutants and we are all quick to blame ourselves or accept our fate.

Sorry for the rant. Let's get back to the important stuff..

a reply to: testingtesting

It was indeed a good bit of time, and I guess I just like understanding life and actively participating in discoveries rather than just talking about them, or talking about past discoveries.

I can link things together and figure out what's going on here. I'm not digging anymore, and anyway I couldnt dig anything up that could possibly damage the country's reputation any worse than last 4th of July when the tiny room was discovered in Thomas Jefferson's mansion where he kept one of his little black child sex slaves.
Rock on dude

Between Radium Springs

So , you are new to the area of the Mounds . Radium Springs is around Albany .
You do know you said you found them around Etowah Indian Mounds. Some folks DO know that area. And I do.
Radon gas is not necessarily from Uranium and can exist anywhere

And if you did find them around Etowah , I just let you know what they most likely were . Period

Wait , you edited the part out about Etowah Indian Mounds . Why ? Yet kept the Museum pic .
