Folsom Info: Folsom points are a distinct form of chipped stone projectile points associated with the Folsom Tradition of North America. The style of toolmaking was named after Folsom, New Mexico where the first sample was found within the bone structure of a bison in 1927.
The points are bifacially worked and have a symmetrical, leaf-like shape with a concave base and wide, shallow grooves running almost the entire length of the point. The edges are finely worked. The characteristic groove, known as fluting, may have served to aid hafting to a wooden shaft or dart. Use-wear studies have shown that some examples were used as knives as well as projectile points. The fluting required great technical ability to effect, and it took archaeologists many years of experimentation to replicate it. Folsom points are found widely across North America and are dated to the period between 9500 BC and 8000 BC. The discovery of these artifacts in the early 20th century raised questions about when the first humans arrived in North America. From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folsom_point
FOLSOM POINT (EICHENBERGER CAST)
LINDENMEIER SITE NORTHERN COLORADO This picture shows three views of a cast of a Folsom point that was discovered on the Lindenmeier site. The cast was made sometime in the 1960's or 70's by J. Allen Eichenberger. This is an excellent example of the "classic" Folsom point that has wide and full flute flake removals and fine pressure flaking along the edges. This point (cast) measures 1 13/16 inches (4.6 cm) long.
