This Clovis point was excavated on 8/9/1963 from the Gray Sand unit.  This point was found in association with Mammoth IV.  Five mammoths were unearthed from this area in the northern portion of the Blackwater Draw site.  Mammuthus columbi is the species of mammoth found at the Clovis site.

See some great (and some not so great) images of  Mammuthus columbi.
