Amateur archaeology update II With a little help, an Apalachin man identifies a rare find
Long ago, there was this guy (probably) who made a spear or knife (probably) and then went hunting (probably). But then something happened: "It seems he lost his knife," said John Krein. "Probably."

The spear point was found by the 69-year-old Apalachin retiree in 1965 while he was working on his lawn in the backyard.

"It was right there, practically on the surface, and I was grabbing it with the corner of my digger and then it kind of popped up," he recalled, of the day he found it.
