Description

This sharpened antler projectile point was found at a Late Woodland site in Montgomery County, southwestern Virginia. Bone or antler projectile points were sometimes advantageous over stone ones because they were far lighter. The tips of deer antlers or toe bones (phalanges) were often made into projectile points during the Middle and Late Woodland periods.
