Dalton Point
Description: The base of this triangular Dalton point curves inward. The base, and edges of the blade near the base, are ground. Above the ground portion of the blade, the edge has been resharpened and serrated. The point is made of flint that ranges from gray to dark gray in color. This piece comes from 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.
