    This fine and "classic" example of a Snyders point was found just across the Illinois River to the east of the site in Jersey County. It's made of heat treated Burlington chert and measures 3 1/16 inches (7.7 cm) long and 1 13/16 inches (4.6 cm) wide. Snyders points were made in a wide range of shapes but most of them have large corner notches and rounded bases. The Snyders site produced large numbers of these points. Most of them are broken at their bases. Only a small percentage are complete.
   The Snyders point was named by Edward G. Scully in 1951 after the Snyders site.
