Clovis Point
Description: This projectile point is of the Clovis type. The sides of the lower third are parallel, the base is irregularly concave, and the lateral margins are slightly smoothed. On the obverse face there are two flutes extending from the base to the tip, while on the reverse face is a single, short flute. This piece is made of greenish gray Upper Mercer flint and comes from Early Paleo-Indian Culture. Paleo-Indians occupied Ohio between 15,000 and 9,000 years ago. In the western plains of North America, Paleo-Indians hunted mammoths and other game; because they moved in herds, caribou may have been a favored prey. View on Ohio Memory.
