Default Good lord look at all the clovis'(drool)

I am assuming this is at some museum, its a shame at all the points stuffed in drawers that no one will ever get to see.

Wow!! In my life, I have only seen and got to hold 4 real fluted clovis points that came from off the Savannah River, them people had a whole drawer full.....wouldnt you like to stumble on a site like that! Wait, there is a site like that right behind my office, good old Stallings Island, right out side my office door and it just teases me every day, just once I would like to "look" on it......

I hope I find a drawer full in Ohio this fall.

I'm sure the donating finders never wanted their jewels hidden away from the public eye like seems to be what happens to most donations.

Imagine how big those pieces of Obsidian were before they were made into those large blades. They had to be huge! I bet them injins had some bad backs.

Probably carried the obsidian in the form of preforms as opposed to huge blocks. Even if piles of chips were found as the guy in the video said, I supposed lots more chipping had to be done on those monster blades to get to the finished product. There were probably more made but only a small portion was found....just my opinion.

Reckon they went all the way to Jellystone and got the obsidian or do you think it was just a trade item.

I think it was a trade item, like dentalia shells from the Pacific Northwest, grizzly bear claws from the western plains, and certain sea shells from the Gulf. It is amazin`, how far some of this stuff travelled.
