Sandy, Day 19. 3-8-15
The Big Sandy is a small to medium sized, side notched type with early specimens showing heavy basal grinding, serrations, and horizontal flaking on blade faces. The blade is overall triangular in shape and flat with convex to straight blade edges. Fine pressure flaking was used to retouch the blade edges. The basal edge is commonly concave, but occasionally it can be straight. The side notches are usually broad and can range from shallow to deep. The ears are generally squared but can be rounded as described below. The Big Sandy (a.k.a. Jakie Shelter) and its variants are one of the most common Archaic point types found in the southeastern United States. Big Sandy points occur in highest frequency along the Tennessee River Valley in northern Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. They also occur less frequently in Missouri, south-central Indiana, west-central to southern Illinois, southwestern Ohio, northeastern Texas, and into the southeastern states as far south as Florida. The Big Sandy is known under the preferential term known as Otter Creek in the northeast (Ritchie) and the Taylor Side Notched in southeastern Coastal Plain states.
