Haw River Point Cast


Price: $25.00
A new cast molded from a very rare original. This example measures 4 and 7/8 inches, and was made in a tan Pinter Chert. This type was named for examples found on the Haw River in North Carolina.   There is debate over the age of Haw River points.  They have recently received some attention due to their similarities to Pre-Clovis types found in the region, as well as pressure fluted projectile points in the Solutrean assemblege in Europe.  Most agree this type is somehow near Clovis culture(around 13,000 BP) on either side, being either Pre-Clovis or Post Clovis with its basal thinning pressure flutingn on both sides.  This piece has been resharpened, and also might have been made on a large blade from large core.   It has very slight curve that would match to long blade, with one possible facet of the original ventral face. (see Pictures)   Haw River points were first described by Floyd Painter in 1963 after examples found in North Carolina.   This example was found by Sallie Harper in Limestone County, Al, near Iron City.  (ex. Anthony Melson/Richard Stevens collections)(COA Rodgers08)
