Like many surface hunters, I'm always dreaming of finding something paleo. Late paleo will do. Narragansett Bay is a drowned river valley, so any early paleo campsites in our area are probably at the bottom of the bay. But last night a funny thing happened. I was looking at a site frame and took a closer look at this point. I know where it was found, but neither my wife nor I can remember which of us found it. It was found severaly years ago. Apparently one of us has found a late paleo piece without either of us realizing it. It's thin, tan quartzite, and thinned to a hinge fracture on both faces.
First pic is side A.
Side B showing an impact fracture to the tip. Well, this isn't Missouri, or kentucky, or Ohio, where we might have a chance of finding a true clovis, but by our standards this got us pretty excited, even if we don't know who found it!
