CACHE OF BARBED ANTLER
This picture shows one of the largest caches of antler arrow points ever found. They were discovered during the excavation of Mound 72, in about 1969, on the Cahokia Mounds site. The several hundred antler points in this cache appear, by their alignment, to have been hafted onto arrows. Antler points may have been a common point type used by Mississippian people. They have been found on many Mississippian sites in the southeastern U.S. The large antler point in the picture shows a close-up view of one of the only examples that survives from the excavation.
