BROKEN CLOVIS POINTS
Most of the artifacts in the Fenn cache were newly made and never used. But as this picture shows there is damage on several of the Clovis points that indicate some of them were being used. At least five or more have broken tips from impact damage, three of them can be seen in this picture. One Obsidian point base (at right side in this picture) was snapped near the center and it may also have been damage from impact. A sample was also cut from this point for hydration testing. The result of the test showed that "it was made in ancient times." Two other Clovis points have a portion of one basal ear broken off and there are two tips of finished Clovis points (the first two examples in this picture) that may have broke during use. The three complete crystal Clovis points in the Fenn cache are also described as possibly having been resharpened.
