Description

This quartz projectile point was collected in Sussex County and is characteristic of the widespread Clovis culture that flourished around 13,000 years ago. Clovis points are found across the Americas. Thanks to another site in Sussex County (south-central Virginia), we know that people have lived in Virginia since 18,000 - 20,000 years ago.
