Wow that's wild to find something that was made so so so long ago. Incredible. How old do you think they are? Are they pretty easy to find? Lawns like it would be very rare.

The first set of photos yes one day finds in a creek that is a mile with smaller creeks branching off the main took about 8hrs to walk it

I don't get out much when I need a break from business I go for a walk

Best time to go is few days after a big storm

Pretty cool. Guess there are a lot of them. Must have been a large "colony" way back when. How do you know there weren't natives making this stuff right through the 1700s?
