Native American Relics

I'm creating these pages as a way to catalogue my collection and learn about point typology.  It's also the place where I'll be recording the notes I take while doing research on ancient America.  These points are not for sale though I am occasionally interested in purchasing old collections especially if they are personal finds. Personal recollections by the finder about the finding of the artifacts are definitely of interest to me. Many times the story is more interesting than the point itself.

Boone County, Missouri
Burlington Chert
L 2-7/16"  W 7/8"

Midwestern states. A medium to large size lanceolate blade of unusually high quality. Bases are either convex, concave or straight and are usually ground. Some examples are medium ridged and have random to parallel flaking. - Overstreet 10 p. 699


Baker COA

Beaver Lake
Paleo, 11,250 - 8000 B.P.
Clark County, Kentucky
Fort Payne Chert
L 2"  W 3/4"


Baker COA

Southeastern states. A medium to large size lanceolate blade with flaring ears and a concave base. Contemporaneous and associated with Cumberland but thinner and un-fluted. Has been found in deeper layers than Dalton. Overstreet 10 p.344.


Another Example from Barren County, Kentucky
Sonora Hornstone

Clovis
11,50 - 10,600 B.P.
L 2-1/4" W 15/16"
Fort Pain Chert
Kentucky
Ex-Will Burchett collection

A medium to large size, auriculate point identical to the fluted Clovis. A very rare type as most Clovis points are fluted in their finished form. The flaking can be random to parallel. Clovis is the earliest point type in the hemisphere. Clovis technology more closely matches European Solutrean forms than anywhere else. There is no pre-Clovis evidence here. The first Clovis find associated with Mastodons was in 1979 at Mastodon State Park, Jefferson Co., MO. in the Kimmswick bone bed dated to 12,000 B.P. carbon years. Overstreet 10 p. 366
