PROJECTILE POINT TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMY: A CASE STUDY FROM By Phillippe VG. $ Free shipping. Watch. Biologia Central-Americana by Maudslay Vol. A projectile technology was a crucial part of most foragers' strategies for survival, it was functionally spe cific, and it generally was fabricated from durable materials likely to be detected archaeologically.

Being fundamental to meat acquisition and the principal source of calo ries, projectile technologies were typically afforded greater. New World archaeologists have amply demonstrated that fluted point technology is specific to Terminal Pleistocene American cultures.

Base-fluted, and rarer tip-fluted, projectile points from the Americas have been well-documented by archaeologists for nearly a century. Fluting is an iconic stone tool manufacturing method and a specific action that involves the extraction of a channel flake.

Second, smaller point production may relate to a functional difference between points crafted for spearing versus throwing (Ellis et al., ), but experimental studies demonstrate there is no.

This volume redresses that balance. In Stone Tools, renowned lithic analysts employ explicitly theoretical constructs to explore the archaeological record and use the lithic database to establish its points.

Chapters discuss curation, design theory, replacement of stone with metal, piece refitting, and projectile point. Welcome to Projectile Points Arrowhead Identification Guide, the largest most comprehensive on-line identification guide.

We currently have over 2, unique points listed, and many more points soon to be listed. Most points have multiple examples pictured, other sites may have more pictures currently, but with your help our database in. This book by Loendorf and Rice of the Gila River Indian Community's Cultural Resource Management Program reports on the nearly 1, projectile points or point preforms that were collected by archaeological survey crews during inventory of more thanacres of the reservation.

Clovis points are thin, fluted projectile points created using bifacial percussion flaking (that is, each face is flaked on both edges alternatively with a percussor). To finish shaping and sharpening the points, they are sometimes pressure flaked along the outer edges.

Clovis points are characterized by concave longitudinal shallow grooves called "flutes" on both faces one third or more up. The Hogeye Clovis Cache Michael R.

Waters and Thomas A. Jennings This book provides a well-illustrated, thoroughly analyzed description and discussion of the Hogeye Clovis cache, the projectile points and other artifacts from later occupations, and the geological context of the site, which has yielded evidence of multiple Paleoindian, Archaic, and Late Prehistoric occupations.

Notch – the portion of a projectile point that has been removed on the sides, corners, or at the base of the projectile point. Examples of common projectile point notches: Corner-notched point – a projectile point which has been flaked where the side of the blade and the base meet (e.g., Wacissa, Bolen Plain Subtype 4, Bolen Beveled Subtype 4, Lafayette, Clay).

The projectile points from the Gault Assemblage exhibit two stem morphologies: stemmed and lanceolate (Supplementary Materials). One stemmed projectile point (Fig. 3I) exhibits a slightly concave base, with concave lateral margins and. termed a “point” as equivalent to a projectile point, especially points when they are relatively thin and triangular or foliate in shape.

It is argued that the size of the “point” indicates the size of armature, the assumption being that spear/javelin points were large and heavy, spear throwers smaller, and arrows the smallest and lightest.

Folsom sites are differentiated from other Paleoindian hunter-gatherer groups such as Clovis by a specific and distinctive stone tool-making technology.

Folsom technology refers to projectile points made with a channel flake down the center on one or both sides, and the lack of a robust blade technology. Clovis people were primarily, but not entirely mammoth hunters, an economy. As with pottery, innovation in projectile point styles was quite limited at any particular time.

Toolmaking skills were passed down from father to son, who worked hard to adhere to the proper pattern. Toolmaking changed gradually over hundreds of years, and no one likely saw any change in stone-tool technology during his or her lifetime.

BEVELED PROJECTILE POINTS AND BALLISTICS TECHNOLOGY Carl P. Lipo, Robert C. Dunnell, Michael J. O’Brien, Veronica Harper, and John Dudgeon Explanations for beveled blade edges on projectile points have been debated in North America archaeology since the first systematic description of lithic assemblages in the nineteenth century.

This book provides a single-source for projectile points in the literature of American archeology. Its purpose is to provide a quick lookup for point types; the user then utilizes the basic references that are provided for more research information, point comparisons, data, distributions, etc.

This publication was written to provide a source for archaeological projectile point typology for a region of the U.S. that over the years has been traditionally divided into: Northeast culture area Middle Atlantic culture area Southeastern culture area These divisions are based primarily on lithic technology and settlement patterns.

There has been a need for such a book for many years and this book fulfills that need. The book describes 53 projectile point types which are the majority of point types likely to be found in Missouri.Other Points in This Cluster. This is a list of points that are similar to the listed point in both age, technique, and characteristics and have been clustered together with the listed point.

These points may or may not be found within the same distribution region, but stem from the same technology.Projectile Points and the Illinois Landscape book.
