Cache of Celts

Cache of stone woodworking tools found in Tongass National Forest

So maybe I am obsessed with ground stone celts, who isn’t, but nonetheless I liked this story of the lucky discovery of a cache of large pecked and ground stone woodworking tools in Tongass National Forest in the Alaska Panhandle.   The  article claims the hafting grooves are finger grips, which I think is unlikely.  More likely these are from elbow adzes, such as this one.
