Archaic Indian Arrowheads, Artifacts, Kirk, Benton, Dovetail

(9000 B.P. to 6000 B.P.)

  This section contains archaic indian arrowheads, archaic indian artifacts, archaic indian relics and tools related specific to the archaic time period which include the Dovetail, Andice, Kirk, Benton, Lostlake, Thebes, St. Albans, Kessell, Big Sandy, Kanawah, Andice and many more. The use of flints, cherts, quartz and all other forms of materials for making knives, spears, arrowheads and artifacts for weapons and utility tools and adornment. The early archaic period(9000 B.P. TO 6000 B.P.) was defined on the basis of chipped projectile point technology and styles. This time period is associated with the final glacial retreat on the north american continent and an enviroment similar to that found in the southeast today. Excavations at stratified early archaic sites near major water sources or along rivers have produced corner, basal, and side-notched points, such as Palmer, Kirk and Lecroy, which are found throughout the Southeastern United-States. Other points, such as the St. Albans, Kessell, Big Sandy, and Kanawah have a limited Southeastern Geographical distribution. Also in areas of the Northeast and Midwest points, such as the Dovetail, St. charles, Stemmed Lances, and Thebes have been found also along with others not mentioned here. It is the introduction of new types that differentiates the early archaic period from the preceding late paleo indian sub-period.

  The Archaic Period is also the contention of most all researchers to be the period most likely where the true arrowhead started along with the bow. Hence the small arrowheads that are found in almost every part of the North American Continent that carry the name "Birdpoints". These small Arrowheads are thought to be the true arrowhead and the larger varieties thought to be the Spear or Knife.
