Small Pre-Choctaw Dalton-Type Projectile Point Arrowhead, 10,000


Summary The wonderful thing about 3D printing technology is that it allows you to create replicas of rare, unusual and educational items that you may never be exposed to otherwise. Like this one. This is a late Paleo-Indian to early Archaic projectile point lithic done in the Dalton tradition. These points appeared in most of Southeast North America around 8500–7900 BC (10,500BP to 9,900BP). These points are finely pressure flaked. Heavy resharpening suggests they were often used as knife blades.This particular point is attributed the ancestral proto-indians of the Choctaw tribe, and was excavated near the Tennessee River in Western Tennessee. Item(s) are currently curated in the Department of Anthropology, Indiana University South Bend. Scanned with NextEngine scanner.
