buck, It's like hunting if you can find a mentor the learning curve will be short. If you do it yourself it can take a little longer. Check out youtube and other internet sites. Also like Terphunter said water is the key.

Terphunter, I'll bet where you find your shark teeth you find prehistoric tools as well. I did the Archaeology field work for route 2/4 and the Washington Gas and Electric line through Calvert Co. we found many tools made from the teeth and tools in association with the teeth. I also scuba dive a couple spots in the bay that produce teeth and points. I like to think about how the natives collected the same areas as do we.

Cool! I have found a few points on the bay and Potomac looking for sharks teeth but nowhere near the quality of my NY stuff!

The Onondaga Chert of New York is a beautiful "flint" and some of my nicest finds are made of this lithic....Not uncommon to find points made from this, in Pa.

I combed a tributary of the Neshaminy Creek for hours yesterday with high hopes and came out negative. Anybody have luck in SE PA, Bucks County? I did come across some HUGE fresh rubs in a "NO HUNTING" area... par for the course.

A guys at work works the banks of the Susquehanna River when the water gets a little lower. He has an outstanding collection.

We used to go out in the spring after the fields were plowed along bigger creeks or the river. Right after a hard rain, which washes the dirt off, and before the crops or weeds start to grow.

Today it's a chore just to find a field that still gets plowed !...No "till" has assured us that many arrowheads shall remained buried forever!
