These stone points are reproductions of those found at an important Paleoindian site in Sussex County (south-central Virginia). This site gave archaeologists evidence that people had been living in Virginia much earlier than had previously been thought. These stone points are characteristic of the widespread Clovis culture that flourished across the Americas around 13,000 years ago. The earliest occupation at the site dates to between 18,000 and 20,000 years ago.
