Hopewell Point Cast

Price: $25.00
A cast of a classic Hopewell point from Ohio. Dates to the Hopewell Culture of the Woodland period(around 2,500 to 1500 years ago). Measuring 3 and 3/8th inches in Flint Ridge flint.  The Hopewell culture, and its "sphere of influence" spread across the Eastern Half of the United States from the Atlantic to the Rockies, and from Canada down to Florida.  There was an amazing exchange of materials including shells, sharks teeth, precious rocks including obsidian, and countless other wood items that are lost to archaeology.  This cultural exchange also shows in influence in religious culture, with the spread of religious art shown in rock carving and pottery.  The classic Hopewell culture finds itself in Ohio, where large earthenworks are the hallmark of this amazing cultural tradition.  This point was sent to Occpaleo in 2014 for molding and casting, from Ohio's finest private collection.  It is a wonderful example of the type of stone tool being traded through the Hopewell exchange.  It is undamaged, made very thin and shows excellent workmanship.  (COA Stermer/Western Typology 2013)
