<<Back to Projectile Point Chronology 

Avonlea   1,800-900 B.P.

This small, triangular, side-notched projectile point is well executed.  Flake scars are wide and shallow extending from the edge of the blade to the mid-point or beyond.  Small, shallow, but fairly wide side notches are placed very low on the blade. Notches are V or U-shaped, never rectangular.  The base may be wider, equal to, or narrower than the proximal end of the blade. Usually, the corners of the base are rounded rather than sharp.  Bases are usually concave, but can be straight.  Small ears are typical. Length range: 13 to 45 mm, width range: 9.5 to 17 mm, thickness range: 2 to 4.2 mm.  Kehoe
