Fort Ancient Point
Description: This Fort Ancient type projectile point is in the shape of an isosceles triangle. The blade has serrated edges and it is made of dark brown and pinkish gray flint. This piece comes from Fort Ancient Culture. The Fort Ancient people were a late prehistoric culture living in southern Ohio between 1,100 and 450 years ago. Fort Ancient people were Ohio's original farmers, growing crops of corn, beans, and squash, and thrived in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Villages were made up of a number of circular or rectangular houses surrounding an open plaza. The Fort Ancient people continued to build small burial mounds, but gradually shifted to burials in a cemetery area with no mounds. View on Ohio Memory.
