    Only took 30 yrs. but finally got a calf creek. Don't make it out much any more but was able to get out a couple weeks ago after a local river flooded. It washed through an Archaic site but I sure wasn't expecting the calf creek. Not too far from it, I also found a Nebo Hill pt. Turned out to be a lot better day than I was expecting. Also found another Archaic pt. on a site close by.

    Beauty! If I found it I would call it Andice but basically the same cultures made Bell, Calfcreek ,and Andice.

    That's a good one.

    No doubt. I attended a knapping Experiment at TSU where some of the best modern knappers made them and flakes from every stage studied. I brought my frames for reference. The conclusion was that the main reason complete andice are so rare now is that complete andice were rare during the time the cultures made them. I have many notching failures in my study frame. Even if the point was completed and hafted, it likely lost an ear on the first use or resharpening. One of the most failure probe artifacts. They didn't mind using them well after the ears were gone either.

    This site seems to be strictly an Archaic site. Most sites seem to be multi-component with Woodland and Archaic mixed together but not this one. It seems strange that I had never found any broken Calf Creeks. Don't know why they would only make one or two unless it was a specialty tool and I don't believe that to be the case. I remember reading an article years ago where they found one imbedded it a bison calf skull. I wouldn't think they would have made that great of a projectile point though.

    It's always exciting to find an artifact that you did not expect to find, ''Way to go''.

    This may well be true. The andice layer in my Houston co site was 7 to 8 ft deep.

    After 30 years that must feel real nice. Congrats?

    How would a notch be made like that?
