Have you ever found anything ancient?
As a field archaeologist, finding ancient things is quite literally what I'm paid to do.
The most ancient thing I've found are these:
3 Maori adzes/axes in New Zealand and several arrow heads in Delaware. Not sure about ‘ancient', but old.
Last week I went to Wadi Al-Hitan, Whale Valley, in the Western Desert of Egypt, and I've found a fossil shark teeth.
I was hiking in Scotland and found a balance weight by a stream that looked very old. My friend wanted it and I gave it to him and that is all I know about it. To me finding it was of more interest than the thing itself.
I've found a few fossils.
Living in the United States, it would be a very rare thing indeed to find anything ancient that was man-made.
I have found some antique bits and bobs here and there: an old railroad switch light, and an antique water pump that was on the family's old homestead.
Nothing that was over a hundred or so years old.
I was given a box of very old family tintypes, some of which had to date back to the 1860's at least. Luckily, every single one of them was labeled on the back.
Those are probably the oldest things I have held in my own hands.
