Adena Stemmed Point
Description: This large, bifacial, leaf-shaped Adena Stemmed point has reddish incrustations (possibly ocher) scattered on both faces. The indented base is heavily convex and the flint is very dark gray in color. This piece comes from Adena Culture. The Adena Culture (800 B.C.- 100 A.D.), named for a mound found on the Chillicothe estate of Thomas Worthington, lived primarily in present-day Ohio and parts of Pennsylvania, Indiana, Kentucky and West Virginia. They built large effigy and burial mounds. The Adena were primarily hunter-gatherers, but began to grow squash and some weedy plants. View on Ohio Memory.
