old, old mortar on the ground
(between dutch mills and lincoln in the country)
i live near dutch mills arkansas in the country, occasionally i search for arrow heads or artifacts and there is a creek which feeds off a bigger creek, i usually head up it on my little searches and we had a drought last summer which began to dry up everything but i noticed this one spot which held water and i was searching around it for a small spring that maybe kept it moist but could not find anything like that and all was powder dry around it i would stick it and see how deep it was and only a couple of inches of water sits there but it never drys up,well finally after 3 months with no rain i walked up that creek and wow, as i was approaching it looked like i was seeing a giant turtle back from a distance but as i got closer it was old ancient mortar mixture , a big circle, maybe 3 ft by 3 ft. and i sat there and just stared because there is no homestead around or never has been in that area, well my plan this summer is to bust through it and see what i have there, i'm thinking treasure, i will have to find help as i am female and this might require some digging and busting this strange patch of mortar up, well anyways it has rained since the drought and there is water again all over which keeps this disquised, i could clear the puddle with a bucket, but anyways it was only exposed for a couple of weeks.it took that severe drought to expose this secret spot to me and now it is under water again, do you think it is worth investigating and was it somehow designed to hold water under any condition except a severe drought. Well thanks for listening.
