Folsom bases (3)

Three Folsom-age projectile point bases from various areas of the Blackwater Draw site.

  • LA3324.5036 (top left) was excavated in 1989 during investigations of the South Bank.  This projectile point base was found in association with extinct bison.
  • LA3324.24134 (top right) was discovered during the 1962-1963 F. E. Green excavations of the North Bank.  This projectile point fragment is highly polished from spring activity.
  • LA3324.32864 (bottom) was discovered in 1962 by J. Hester during the El Llano Archaeological Society excavation of the North Bank.

All three of these projectile point fragments are made of Edwards Plateau chert from central Texas.

Stay tuned for more artifacts from the Clovis site!
