Native American, North America, Eastern Woodland, ca. 200 to 1000 CE. A group of fifty chert projectile points, ranging in color from dark grey to red to creamy white. Their forms are varied, with a variety of stem and notch styles. Small points like these are colloquially called "bird points" but experimental archaeology has shown that they could easily have been used for hunting large game like deer - birds were much easier to capture with nets. Size of largest point: 0.7" W x 2.1" H (1.8 cm x 5.3 cm); size of case: 16.25" W x 12.25" H (41.3 cm x 31.1 cm)
