Welcome to the BIRA BLOG page where you will find posts on everything from the Name That Artifact Series where you can assist in naming locally found artifacts to keeping up to date on current site investigations throughout Virginia and surrounding.
Please use the NAME THAT ARTIFACT SERIES of blogs to lend your knowledge to identification of these local artifacts.
Looking for the proper name, terminology, period, approximate age, type of stone material, etc.
As the site grows the intent is to list the specifications of each item in the original posting to include overall dimensions, weight, location along with other information that the users find useful in identification.
Have an awesome local find that you want to share?
Have a stone tool of some sort but just don't know what it is?
Submit your finds to BIRA with some basic information and we will post to the Name That Artifact Series to help identify or the Gallery to show off your local find!
