Clovis Artifacts

Description

Pictured are Clovis-style artifacts, including cores, blades, and a hammerstone. Clovis-age culture dates to approximately 13,000 years ago and is named for stone and bone projectile points—so-called Clovis points used on spears, darts, arrows, and knives—found near Clovis, New Mexico, in the mid-1930s. Scholars long believed that Clovis culture represented the earliest human habitation in America until sites such as Cactus Hill in Virginia were excavated and showed evidence of pre-Clovis culture.
