my name is jennifer oelberger and i am a junior history major at
haverford college in pennsylvania. we are in junior seminar right now, a
class in which we have to research a historical object. i received a
quartzite stemmed projectile point that is about 2 and 5/16" long, 1and
1/2" wide and about 7/16" thick at the thickest point. the stem is about
1/4 to 1/3 of the length. it has no provenance and so i do not know where
it originally came from, although i am guessing somewhere in north america.
i would love to hear anything you could lend to my very small amount of
knowledge about this wonderful piece of historical evidence.
