Nine Points on a Finger

The Aniakchak villager's made some small points. Archaeologists often assume that these miniature arrowheads were used as toys. Given their abundance at the site, however, I believe these were used for other purposes. Either that, or this village was some kind of day care camp, because the majority of our hafted biface assemblage was of points under 2 cm in length. This photo was taken by my lab assistants, Forest and Adam.
