    A new moral dilema

    Moving back to Battle Mountain reminded of a place I went when I was little to pick up arrowheads. The ground was absolutely covered with chips and broken arrowheads. I didn't think much about it when I was little, but I'll bet indians were using this spot for hundreds if not thousands of years. The people I've told about it say I shouldn't say anything because they don't want the land placed off limits to hunters and snow mobilers etc. Do you think a site like that would be of interest to an archeologist? I'm not a big outdoorsman so I think the historical value is more important than the recreational. What I don't know is whether sites like this are commonplace or if they are of interest to archeologists.

    They may be of interest to the native nations that used the area.
    Sounds like a place where they made arrowheads.

    Agreed. I would start by contacting the native American tribes in your region.

    You may well find that they know of it and can tell you the history of where you once roamed.
