Robbins Point
Description: This small, leaf-shaped Robbins point has a narrow stem that is roughly rectangular. The basal edge of the stem is slightly convex. The point is made of dark gray Flint Ridge flint and 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.
