Big Sandy looks good, Brewerton close runner up. I marvel at the time frame listed in the $ book, 10,000 to 3,000
Thats hard to believe that one distinct tribe could be making a similar tool over 7,000 yrs. To quote Dr H on this type...
"Much more research needs to be done on the Big Sandy type in Texas, and identification of these points should be done with caution. "
Definitely Angostura, that neat curved base AND good looking flaking.
Austin on the Beveled one ?
Ok Hal, trying not to get in over my head here! Was hoping you were going to take it and run with it!
I tried going back and finding where that terminology came from, with no luck.
Bladelet, utilized as a knife or tool driven from core, apparently without the intentions of being hafted or made into a bi-face form. I think the larger (longer) ones were made in the earliest times and the smaller (shorter) ones were from a later period.
The one I posted is right at 3in's, the info above is just my understanding and should not be considered to hold much credibility !!!!
