Calf Creek Point

Chapman (1975) does not include the Calf Creek point type in his discussion of "types" found in Missouri. That is because this type is very uncommon in Missouri. Morrow (1984) does not discuss it in his survey of diagnostic projectile points found in Iowa. Perino (1968:14 - 15) reports that the length ranges from 43 to 63 mm and that the suggested age is from 5000 to 3000 BC. Sandstrom and Ray (2004:14) associate this point type with the Middle Archaic Period.
