We see a lot of arrows in our culture. Some tell us that the restroom is on the left; others indicate that stock trading is down for the week. You might even have an arrow on your screen right now, showing you where to click! But have you ever found an arrow on the ground? Commonly referred to as “arrowheads,” these Indian projectile points were not made to show direction. Instead, they tipped the heads of hunting spears during the Paleoindian and Archaic periods. Later, when the bow and arrow was invented during the Late Woodland Period (around A.D 600), the points served as arrows for hunting and warfare. Often made of chert (a type of flint) or quartz, Indian projectile points come in many sizes, shapes, and colors, depending on where and when they were crafted.
