Creation Date



From repository (Webb 1996:136): Large chipped blade of gray-tay chert, found in Burial Pit 3, Gahagan Mound in August 1938, leaning against the frog pipe, intact. It is the largest and longest blade found at this site, undoubtedly ceremonial, and very well made. Wide, shallow flaking with fine retouching around the edges, good tip. The base is squared, one edge straight, the other mildly recurved. Length is 24.8 cm., width 5.7 cm.

This biface is curated at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum in Shreveport, Louisiana.
