Hey Charlie, nice to see you. :D

Question on that recent post of the broken point. It seems that originally it was a long, thin, bifacial point that appears to be fluted (although crudely).

Why would you not call that a Clovis point, rather than pre-Clovis?

Thanks Charlie. Originally,it looks as if it would have been 51/2-6 inches long. I would have thought it was a Clovis point. Great pics. :D

Curious shaped blade there in the post before last. May be getting carried away but it vaguely reminded me of Mayan eccentric flints, albeit in cruder form:

ie - something with a more ceremonial (?) than practical purpose. Just a thought.

That last one is a beautiful point but at 2 inches long and maybe an inch wide doesn't it seem too small for a spear point?

Of course, the Club says they didn't have archery... Maybe they were playing lawn darts?

Glad to see you're still keeping yourself busy, man.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Hey Charlie - going through an STP phase? The videos make good backgrounds while parousing the pictures of your latest finds.

I sense the same problem for archery that there is for boats. The wooden parts are not going to survive. A bow is a stick with a string....both organic materials and an arrow shaft is a thin piece of wood with a stone point.

A thousand years of exposure wouldn't likely leave much aside from the point.

Interesting thought about the bigger clovis points though. First, one would assume that the hunter would know to stab for the spots without a lot of bone to protect them. Think your wife would let you stab a big pork roast with one to see what happens?
