Agate Basin Point
Description: This leaf-shaped blade tapers from the center to a squared base; it is of the Agate Basin type. There is no evidence of grinding on the margins or the base. This piece is made of mottled grayish blue and pale blue Upper Mercer flint and comes from Late 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.
