This Buck Creek point was
found in Hardin County, Kentucky. It dates to the Late Archaic period
approximately 3,000 years ago. Buck Creek points were named by Mark F.
Seeman in 1975 after Buck Creek in Harrison County, Indiana where the
type site is located. Large and very well made Buck Creek points, like
this example, are usually associated with caches. They were probably
made for some type of special event, such as for a burial. But most Buck
Creek points were obviously tools that were used every day for knives or
projectile points. They show heavy use from edge resharpening and
various types of use wear damage.
