This Goshen point was
discovered during the excavation of the Mill Iron site in Carter County,
Montana. It's the most skillfully crafted example found on the site. It was
made with very uniform parallel pressure flaking on both sides. The base is
also concave but straight in the basal cavity. One unique feature is a
neatly flaked rounded point.
MILL IRON SITE
The Mill iron site is
located in Carter County, Montana in the southeastern part of the state.
It's now believed that it represents the Goshen Cultural Complex as it was
described at the Hell Gap site in southeastern Wyoming. There are now five
accelerator dates on the site that average over 11,000 years before present.
It remains to be proven if Goshen is a Clovis variant or if it should be
placed somewhere between Clovis and Folsom.
