Narragansett Bay Arrowhead

Reader Charlie D. writes:
My wife Helen found this tiny point in 2005 on Narragansett Bay. First photo is true color. I wrote this up for Indian Artifact Magazine a few years ago as we found it in an unusual way that made for a good story. Almost all New England fluted points are made of exotic cherts, quartzite usually means we've entered the Archaic era and people are settling in, rather then just seasonal visits for caribou. So this tiny fluted point might be very Late Paleo.
