Robbins Point
Description: This long, leaf-shaped flint point is of the Robbins type. The stem is slightly convex at the basal edge, and it is gray in color, except at the tip, where it is dark gray. This piece is 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.
