This Paleo point was found by DarkeJournal reader E.H. along Route 118 in Greenville. It is around 9,000 to 10,000 years old and is made of flint found along the Ohio River in Harrison County, Indiana.
All “arrowheads” found in Darke County are made of flint from out of county, because there are no flint outcrops here. The Paleo people were highly mobile, and most artifacts from the 10,000 year-ago period were brought from places so remote that some of the raw material they used is unidentifiable.
The raw material in the pictured artifact is identifiable, even though it is highly patinated.
