Clovis Points

When I find the picture of a spear point found in the skeleton of a bison on the Illinois River during low water, I’ll post it.  It was on display at Dickson Mounds Museum in central Illinois.  They have great displays of artifacts.

Didn’t Forrest mention that finding a Clovis point inside the skull of a mammoth is still on his bucket list?
