UWAR ARTIFACT OF THE WEEK!!!!!
There are few projectile point types that exhibit the craftsmanship found on Eden points. Eden points were common during Paleoindian times, circa 9,000 – 8,500 years before present. The well-executed parallel flake removals and a median ridge create a symmetrical diamond-shaped cross-section. This attention to detail involved a significant investment in manufacturing time. However, these points were long and narrow and are often found broken like the point base on the left. While it seems counter-intuitive to spend a long time working on a technology which could break, Eden points could also be resharpened – much like a modern snap-off utility knife. The point on the right in the photo is the result of resharpening and was likely much longer at one time.
