Description

Arrowhead, point or drill (石錐) . Elongated oval. Bifacially retouched. Translucent obsidian. 13186, 13192, 13200, 29-192-9 and 29-183-24 are very narrow elongated bifacially retouched points. Each one is quite wide in the center. 29-192-9 is the largest of the group. These objects are probably another form of arrowhead or point which can tentatively be dated anywhere from the Late Paleolithic Period to Yayoi Period.
