Description:
Two small chert bifaces (arrow heads) found in digging ditch near Pearson's Hall, April 18, 1908. Both artifacts likely date from the Mid Woodland (2,000-1,000 BP) to Contact Period. The triangular biface is stylistically a Levanna point and the notched point is possibly a Meadowwood variant.
