FAIRFAX COUNTY, VIRGINIA
This Clovis point was found in 1975 near Fairfax Circle, Virginia in
Accotink creek. It's a good example of an early paleo-Indian fluted
projectile point from this area.
This Clovis point has two side-by-side channel flake
removals on one side. The other side has a single long narrow channel
flake that was partially removed from further basal thinning and shaping.
This spear point was probably resharpened one or more times. The longest
flute measures 1 3/8 inches (3.4 cm) long.
This Clovis point is made of green Normanskill chert
and it measures 2 7/8 inches (7.3 cm) long.
