The best places to find old arrowheads are in land that has been dug up or disturbed, such as creek beds, tilled fields and even in construction sites. Caves and other dry places that might have more delicate historical items inside can also be good places to look for arrowheads.
Searchers require a great deal of patience and equally good eyesight to excel at the task of locating arrowheads. In addition to finding arrowheads, other items may be found, including tools, spears and objects made of stone or animal bone (things that can withstand the test of time). By examining these items one can often find out a lot about the people who lived there centuries before.
