TYPE II SANDIA POINT
This is a cast of one of the Sandia type II points found in Sandia Cave. The cast was made several years ago by J. Allen Eichenberger. Truncated stem points, like this example, were described as type II Sandia points. This point represents an ideal concept of what a missing link between Old and New World spear point design should look like. It has a single shoulder like Solutrean points from southwestern Europe and a fluted base that relates to New World Folsom and Clovis points. This cast measures 2 1/2 inches (6.3 cm) long.
