Hello fellow artifact collectors my name is Tim Harvell I live in Tulsa Oklahoma I'm 39 and work in construction sales, I moved here from California four years ago.
How I got started collecting!
started collecting arrowheads in the foot hills of the San
Juaquin valley Ca, my father in law introduced me to the hobby.
while walking around the horse corral, I asked him what they
looked like, not more than ten seconds later he reached down and
picked up a beautiful red obsidian point and said " like
this" .. Well I was off , I looked for three days straight,
hunched over , my back was killing me. I was helping my soon to
be wife across a creek and looked down , there was a perfect
obsidian point laying there on the sand under water, needless to say my wife got left on a rock while I retrieved it. That was the start of quite an obsidian collection that my father in law has now.. After my daughter was born , I packed up my family and got them the heck out of California, when I arrived here in Oklahoma I discovered the Arkansas river and the rest is history. This pic is of my daughter Chelsea Rene and I in Yosemite which is about 45 minutes from where I used to live...
What I like to collect!
I like to collect Paleo but the adrenaline rush is the same with everything I pick up.
My favorite relic!
My favorite point, a Scottsbluff 4 1/4 inches made of Edwards chert.
