Lovell Constricted   8,800-8,400 B.P.

Lovell Constricted points are medium to large in size with a concave base and a definite constriction of the lateral edges slightly distal to the base.  Basal edges vary from shallow to moderately concave.  Flaking is crudely parallel oblique with the flake scars extending downward to the right.  Lateral edges are retouched, and basal edges are bifacially thinned.   Cross-section is lenticular.  Length ranges from 50 to 65 mm, width from 19 to 25 mm, and thickness from 6.5 to 9 mm.  Husted
