This arrow point is known as a "Jack's Reef" corner-notched point. It is common in the Middle Woodland era of coastal NH, from around 500 - 700 AD. It is distinctive because most are made from a mustard-yellow colored stone called jasper. Indians may have traded this material all the way from Pennsylvania.


This arrow head, technically called a projectile point is of the type used throughout New England and south along eastern North America. This Levanne Triangle projectile point dates from the Late Woodland period, about 1,000- 1,500 AD.


Stone plummets are thought to be the equivalent of modern day fishing weights. They were used during the Late Archaic period between 6,000 and 3,500 years ago.
