This arrow point was found on the Auvernier site in western Switzerland. It's a classic example of a common form of projectile point that is found on Stone Age sites in many areas of the world. Keller illustrates three different shapes of arrow points and refers to this style as "the most artistic of all." Desor also describes lake dweller arrow points in 1872: "The arrows are triangular, frequently provided with barbs, which rendered them more formidable. Traces are sometimes observed of the cement which united them to the stock. There were also points of arrows of bone, but these are much rarer; the museum of Neuchatel posses one from Concise of very peculiar form; others were fitted to the stick and secured by means of pitch. In the specimen annexed (pictured) may be distinguished the impression of the stick and the thread which fastened it; others still are serrated, or furnished with a small lateral hook, similar to a diminutive harpoon." He also reports that the bows were made of yew and that they had found them in good preservation. This point is made from good quality chert and it measures 1 5/16 inches (3.3 cm) long.
