Adena Cache Blade
Description: This chert biface is long, narrow, and leaf-shaped; it has a light yellowish brown cherty base with a dark gray flint tip. 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.
