THE DIRTBROTHERS ARE ALL ABOUT:
Look around your neck-of-the-woods and you'll
see development taking the land into tomorrow.
Look around--- if you see a site under construction that might contain artifacts, do what you can to create cooperation between the developer and authorities. If this cannot happen, we Dirt Brothers, support the saving of artifacts and information from destruction. This is what this site is all about--- save what you can and document what you find whenever possible. Share your finds with the folks around you and raise consciousness.
Let the Dirt Brothers help you create a better and more realistic relationship with the professionals and developers in your area. Let us help you protect your rights to pursue and practice science. Let us help you, the honest collector, to identify the true vandals who are both compromising your freedom to collect, and destroying a heritage that belongs to us all. Let us help you become more than a mere collector of things-- archaeology is about how people lived and what they did, day to day-- the artifacts are just a piece of that puzzle.
If you are interested in excavation of ancient sites, go to a field school or volunteer to help at a Dirt Brothers dig. Learning to do-it-right is the next step past merely collecting things. It's easy and fun! Something the entire family can participate in!
Learn to your heart's content!
The Dirt Brothers will donate webspace and creative work for anyone wanting to showcase the dilemma of development where archaeological sites occur on a case-specific level. We will also donate space for the showcasing of interesting artifacts, either individually, or by collection.
Stand up and be counted! The majority of the public wants to learn more, wants to work side-by-side with professionals at saving and recording history. Let's redefine looting and isolate those who would, by their actions, make our pursuit illegal.
Let's define ethical collecting for the world!

||Think of it----
many artifacts you will see on this site were made before the Egyptian pyramids:
What was life like for these early North American peoples? Archaeology is about what people did day to day-- it's learning about how they lived.
The point to the left is a 4" Pedernales and
is at least 3500 years old.
Keith, came over from the UK in 1997 to help us rescue artifacts from the Onion Creek site, which is still being quarried into oblivion. Unfortunately, Keith passed away in 2005... we will all miss his enthusiasm, intellect and postitive personality.

beautiful little translucent Pedernales point has a tip called a "Donaha".
It's amazing that it's not broken after 2000 years. When held up to a light
small fossils can be seen in the flint. This is not really an arrowhead,
but a dart tip for an atlatl, as seen below, an ancient weapon
similar to a spear, tipped with a dart.
