     Some of the points produced during the day:  Top row– Glass Adena by John;  Adena, Perkiomen Broad, and  Archaic Bevel points of Onondaga chert by Jim; Dalton of Rainy Buttes by Dan.  The six smaller points in the middle were all made by Tom Pedlow– the Madison style triangle points are exceptionally thin and well made.  Onondaga Genesee point at far right, middle row by Dan.  Bottom Row:  Hardin Knobbed, Dovetail, and E-Notch of Burlington chert made by Ken.  Perkiomen and Clovis of Onondaga also by Ken.  Thebes point of Rainy buttes by Dan.  Click here for another picture of some of these points including a Sandia mono-shouldered point by Dana Klein.
