Mount Olive, North Carolina Cache: Points, Knives, or Bifaces?

Record #:
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.
