Abstract:
Discussed were artifacts, initially identified as Morrow Mountain Projectile Points, discovered in a site in Mount Olive, NC. To build his case, the author, proposing that the three butchering tools were actually knives, used this evidence: crafting method; shape, size, weight, and width of the blade; and perceived functions. Illustrations related to these factors were figures featuring images of knives recovered from other archaeological excavations.

Abstract:
This site in Moore County, sponsored by the Department of Transportation and taking place in 2002-2003, intended to determine reasons for the variation of projectile points. Discussed were the excavation and stratigraphy of the Horses Grazing Site. Factors noted by Joel Gunn and Irwin Royner of the hunters were reasons for choosing this area, the time periods in which horse grazing was at its height, the types of arrowheads manufactured, and Horse Grazing point morphology. The conclusion derived was that game hunters migrated in response to a decrease of megafauna in the area. Data illustrating point measurements is contained in Appendix A.
