Location: All of North America Associated Dates: 15,000 - 9,000 B.P. - Early Paleo Morphology: Auriculate General Description: The Clovis blade is a medium to large sized, auriculated, fluted, lanceolate point with excurvate sides and a concave base that is ground. Usually there is a slight contraction or tapering at the base. The widest part of the blade is either midway up along the blade or on resharpened specimens at the base. Most examples are fluted on both sides with the flute extending about one third the way up from the base to the tip but vary in length from minor to full length of the blade. Some examples can show multiple flutes on each side. The flaking on the Clovis can be random to parallel. The edges of the stem where hafting would occur are usually ground. The Clovis type points are are recognizable in pristine form but may lack many of specific type characteristics described above in reworked or end-of-life / discard form. Materials chosen by Paleo-Indians in the manufacture of Clovis points seem to be fine or high grade flints, cherts, chalcedony and jaspers. The Clovis is considered by many to represent the earliest projectile point used by Paleo-Indian people in North America. It it hypothesized that the blade was developed in North America after early man cross the Bearing Straits to reach this continent, about 50,000 years ago. The blade's origin is also thought to have been influenced by migrations from Europe. Current theories place the Clovis' origin point to be in the Southeastern U.S. since more examples are found in Florida, Alabama and Tennessee than anywhere else. There are many subtle variations in the Clovis type as indicated by the large Also See: list above. The Clovis is part of a family or cluster of associated points with regional variations and sub-types. The size of the Clovis point's size can range from 24 mm to 150 mm in length with the typical point being in the 50 mm to 74 mm range. The Clovis was named by Edgar B. Howard for his work in Clovis, New Mexico where the point was found and associated with the remains of an extinct species. It appears that the type was first recognized at Backwater Draw, Eastern New Mexico, by E. H. Sellards, 1952. The type was first reported by J.D. Figgins in 1933, from examples found with extinct mammal bones. From: http://www.lithicsnet.com/clovis.htm
