Shoulder Knife
Description: This shoulder knife was made from flint that is gray and dark grayish brown in color. The knife is widest at its base, which has slightly rounded edges, and the blade is triangular in shape. This piece comes from the Late Prehistoric Period. Several distinctive Late Prehistoric cultures are recognized in different parts of Ohio: Fort Ancient in southern and central Ohio; Sandusky in northwestern Ohio; Whittlesey in northeastern Ohio; and Monongehela in eastern Ohio. These Late Prehistoric groups fished, farmed, and collected wild plant foods throughout Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
