FALMOUTH, Mass. (AP) – A Falmouth woman out walking on a local beach found what she at first thought was a curiously shaped stone. It turned out to be much more.

The diamond-shaped rock Sue Hayden picked up on Menauhant Beach turned out to be an ancient arrowhead at least 2,000 years old.

Jeff Boudreau of the Massachusetts Archeological Society in Middleborough says the stone is an Early Woodland Indian arrowhead from the Rossville Era that is between 2,000 and 2,700 years old.

Boudreau says despite its age, the artifact has little or no monetary value.

Sue Hayden and her husband, Peter, plan on displaying the arrowhead in their home.
