Agate Basin Point
Description: This Agate Basin point is long and narrow; it widens at the midsection and tapers to a square base. The lower lateral edges of the blade are ground smooth, and the squared base was also lightly ground. The tip of the point is missing. This piece is made of dusky blue and grayish 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.
