Lanceolate Point
Description: This leaf-shaped Lanceolate projectile point tapers to the base, which is straight with rounded corners. The edges of the lower half of the blade and the base are ground smooth. This piece is made of black flint and 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.
