Clovis Culture

The Clovis Culture is a prehistoric archaeological culture existing near the end of the Last Glacial Period primarily named for distinct bone and stone tools first found near Clovis, New Mexico. Known for Clovis stone points, blades and spear points that were typically worked on both sides, these tools are very distinctive because they were chipped from brittle stones (jasper, chert, obsidian and others), often have a lance-shaped tip and sometimes had very sharp edges. Our collection includes a fine example found near Austin,Texas.

    This triangular spearpoint blade, worked on both sides, was found in Texas, along with with others and are revising theories about ancient American history. They are the oldest weapons found in North America and may date from 15,000-10,000 BCE. Most stone projectiles measure 3-4 inches, but this one is much larger at 7.5″, has impressive stone chip patterns and is likely a hunting tool for mammoths and other large game.
