Side Notched Spearhead


Hitting the rock pile, I was able to find a nice spall of Keokuk Burlington chert, and knapped a 5-inch spearhead.  This piece has a couple of side notches facilitating hafting to a spear shaft.  Notches were developed on stone points some time during the Archaic Period (8000 - 2000 B.C.).  Hunter gatherer societies that lived thru this broad span of time developed a multitude of point styles and notching technics.

Very nice piece. All we seem to have in our forest is trap rock and quartz!

I can appreciate that. Good rock is far and few between on the eastern side of Nebraska. The rock in my pile is from all over...obsidian and dacite from Oregon, burlinton from Oklahoma, chert from Alabama, Arkansas, and Nebraka, some English flint, etc.
