My goodness! Does it get much better? That is a Maritime Archaic spear. The Maritime Archaic crafted the ground slate points you find in your neck of the woods, and this piece is modeled after those slate points. That is a very valuable artifact! Wow!
i voted banner. Something that rare in that material and condition does not come along very often! How big is it? Point size or spear size? You are very lucky to be able to hunt a part of the country where Maritime Archaic artifacts can be found. A fascinating culture who were very skilled deep sea fisherman, evidenced by swordfish, a deep water fish, found at their camps.
Your's is a much nicer form then the Maritime Archaic bone spear shown here:
Here are some Eskimo ground slate points. Note the resemblance of the barbed examples to your find. The fact is circumpolar people around the globe utilized similar ground slate technology and bone deep sea weapon technology. Same style ground slate spears in Scandinavia as in Canada and Maine.
Sorry about the no replies.I had phone drama and was out of commission for awhile.Still don't know much about this point.I don't believe it's bone because I don't believe it would last.It is not pink it's about three inches long.It was found about sixteen inches deep in a site that I have been digging for five years.The site has produced a variety of points knapped and ground.It has also yielded many gouges,plummets and other stone tools used in woodworking .The site also has a lot of pottery shards .This means along with the archaic presence there was a much later occupancy.It sits twenty yards off a stream in Maine.Thanks for your time....
