Adena Blade
Description: This long and narrow biface is leaf-shaped. It is made of Upper Mercer flint that is very dark gray in color. This piece comes from Adena culture. The Adena Culture (500 B.C.- 200 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.
