This ivory artifact dates to the Clovis culture approximately 14,000 years ago. It was discovered in 1962 by J. D. Murray an employee of the Sam Sanders' Gravel Pit located in Roosevelt County, New Mexico. This rare ivory artifact has been described as a multi-functional tool that was used as both a flintknapping tool and a hide processing tool. It's described as a short, cylindrical section of mammoth ivory with slightly convex ends. It's been compared in shape to the head of a two pound hammer and it measures 3 inches (7.35 cm) long, 1 13/16 inches (4.6 cm) wide and 1 5/16 inches (3.48 cm) thick (the ivory may have shrunk slightly since these measurements were first made).
