Object Name Point, Projectile
Description One fluted Clovis point. The material is a dark brown chocolate wax-like chert (likely Knife River Flint from North Dakota), with two small beige inclusions in or near the larger flute. The flute is wide and is half the length of the point. The fluting on the opposite side travels about 40% of the point's length and is not as wide nor as well executed. There are also other chip marks at the base of this flute. The point has several larger chip marks along the blade edges. The edges are ground for 1/3 the length of the artifact.
