    Thanks for the link Tom. The very thin base was meant to crumble thus protecting the spear point. This ancient shock absorber reminds me of the technology that goes into modern cars. The front end of a modern car crumbles upon impact thus absorbing the shock. The Clovis people were very wise.

      Interesting article Tom. I always assumed the flute was just a “notch”for the shaft to go around

        I like the video, except the pottery part. I don’t think the NA people used a wheel but prehaps they did turn the clay in some way...I’ve always been curious about the NA pottery clay . Looking at shreds one can tell there were many different levels of purity ... Thanks Tom
