Goshen   11,000-10,700 B.P.

Goshen points are lanceolate with parallel to slightly convex or concave sides and concave bases.  Most flake scars are uniformly directed at right angles to the long axis of the point.  Most are basally thinned by the removal of multiple flakes.  They are manifest by a well-developed pressure flaking technology that is reminiscent of Folsom and closely resemble Plainview.  Frison, G. C.
