The Ushki I site is located in the central Kamchatka Peninsula in
Siberia. Several levels of occupation are recognized from excavations
there. Level 7 is the earliest and carbon dates indicate that it could
be 14,000 years old. Upper levels date to approximately 10,350 years
This stemmed bifacially flaked projectile point was excavated several
years ago on the Ushki I site in the central Kamchatka Peninsula in
Siberia. It represents the earliest example of a projectile point from
the lowest level of excavation. It was made from an opaque black
material that looks like basalt and measures 2 1/4 inches long (55mm).
This point may have been used on the tip of a spear and propelled
through the air with a spear thrower.
