This is the largest Haskett point ever documented archaeologically. It was discovered during an archaeological survey in the Great Salt Lake Desert in western Utah. It represents one of the earliest forms of western stemmed points and appears to date sometime prior to about 12,000 calibrated years before present based on its context. These types of spear points are now believed to have been used to hunt large mammals during the late Pleistocene. Evidence of this comes from another Haskett point found nearby, which reacted positively to elephant antisera (presumably mammoth or mastodon) when tested for protein residue. Both of these points were found within a geological formation known as The Old River Bed which is an abandoned river delta that flowed onto the floor of the Great Salt Lake Desert and, for some time, into ancient Lake Bonneville. This point was found in two pieces within a few feet of each other. The base was cleanly broken with a bend-break type of fracture 1 7/16 inches (3.6 cm) from the base. It's made of black basalt and it measures 8 13/16 inches (22.4 cm) long.
