Robbins Blade
Description: This Robbins type biface is leaf-shaped and made of Flint Ridge flint. The biface is mostly gray in color, with a vein of white running lengthwise along one of the faces; the vein shows through only faintly on the opposite side. 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.
