Adena Point
Description: This small, triangular point has excurvate sides that taper to a slightly-rounded point. The squarish stem has a convex basal edge. The point is predominantly gray, with bands of light gray running diagonally across the face at the tip. 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.
