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.

L 2-7/16"  W 7/8"
Highly Underrated at: G-7.5

Clovis - Fluted
11,50 - 10,600 B.P.
L 2-3/8" W 15/16"
Mead Co. Kentucky

Location: All of North America. A medium to large size, auriculate, fluted, lanceolate point with convex sides and a concave base that is ground. Most examples are fluted on both sides about 1/3 the way up from the base. Clovis is the earliest point type in the hemisphere. Overstreet 10 p. 363

Solutrean Hypothesis - Clovis Culture

Clovis - Unfluted
11,50 - 10,600 B.P.
L 2-1/4" W 15/16"
Fort Pain Chert
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
