Cumberland Point
Description: This Cumberland point tapers just above the base; the base curves inward and the corners of the base come to small points. The blade is broken at the tip, and the flint is mottled with very dark gray black and dark yellowish brown. 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.
