Both of these Clovis points
were found in the cluster C area where the Lamb site cache of ten fluted
points were found. The point on the left has been restored on the tip of
the point and two triangular segments at the mid-section.
This point is most interesting for the heavily patinated dark brown
semi-translucent chert it's made of. The material has been visually identified as Knife River
chert from North Dakota
but further technical analysis may change this assessment. If it could
be scientifically proven to be Knife River it would be the farthest
recorded distance that a Clovis artifact was anciently transported.
Although, the source for Knife River is North Dakota, pieces have been
reported from gravels in the Missouri River. This point measures 4 9/16
inches ( 11.6 cm) long.
