Robbins Point
Description: This Robbins type point has a long, triangular blade, which has been broken and reassembled. The long stem has parallel sides and a slightly rounded base. It is made of Flint Ridge flint that is light gray, very pale brown, and gray in color. There are small pieces of quartz crystal in the flint. This blade 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.
