Point, projectile
Description: Large turkey-tail point is made of Harrison County flint. It is leaf-shaped or feather-shaped with a small base that has shallow side notches. It is mostly gray in color with areas of light gray, dark gray, dark brown and very pale brown. At the base and on one edge close to the tip there are small areas where the weathered outer layer of the flint core from which the point was made (cortex) is still present. The biface is unbroken, which is unusual for turkey-tail points. View on Ohio Memory.
