  • Some help with point type

    Hello all I'm hoping to get a few opinons on these points and blade type and age frame. All were found in same field in Western NY by me over the last couple days.

    Good couple of days!
    Be patient and allow a couple of days for someone from your area to give you some help with id.

      I'll take a shot at this. It's easier than most because you listed numbers to refer to!
      1. Meadowood- Archaic/Woodland, 3000 B.P. , Onondaga chert. Heavily resharpened to exhaustion.
      2-3-5. Notched Brewertons-Archaic, 4500 B.P., Normanskill chert
      6-7. Lamoka points, Archaic, 4500 B.P., Onondaga chert
      4. Adena-Archaic/Woodland, 1500 B.P., Onondaga chert.
      Now this is only identifying from photos, and the lighting, so I think I either have it right, or very close to materials ID. Hope this helps!

          Thanks guys I looked up the types you described and I would agree but I'm not an expert that's why I needed some help.

              It looks like most are made of Onadaga chert.

                Nice to have some plowed fields to walk. All the fields here are now no-till. ☹️

                  Nice finds Paul is spot on with his types and lithics as well. Those Lamoka points although crude always get me going! LOL I have found many in my hunts over the years in western CT along the Housatonic drainage.
