TitleProjectile Point
Coverage / Year1500 B.C. to 900 A.C.E.
DescriptionOff-white colored stone projectile point. Equilateral shaped head with a notched stem and a lower flared base. Sharp edges on two sides and point. Probably late Hopewell/Woodland period.
InterpretationThis point was collected locally. Dating stone projectile points is a difficult task, especially before the arrival of Europeans. Although there is certainly evidence that Native Americans lived and hunted in Champaign County, the area was not a major habitation site.
