A local archeologist for Mizzou looked at both points. He said the green flint came from Eastern Kansas, the knife blade was very old, much older than the spear point.

Collections I’ve seen around here have lots of those knife blades. Arrowheads are far more common than the spear points.

We also have what we think may have been a bowl for mixing things. It’s a soft kind of rock and is hollowed out in the middle to the depth of maybe 2 inches. It’s obvious that someone hollowed it out. For what reason, who knows? I’m curious why someone would leave something that obviously took a lot of time and effort to make..My oldest son found that bowl in a steam in the higher Ozarks west of here.

Don’t ya wish you could step back in time and see the people who built and used these artifacts..?
