Crisp Ovate Point

Chapman (1980:307) notes that Crip Ovate points are found in Southwest Missouri. This artifact type is a small, unstemmed arrowpoint. Chapman notes that length ranges from 25 to 59 mm with the average of 35 to 40 mm. Chapman associates Crips Ovate points with the Mississippi Period from AD 900 to 1400. Sandstrom and Ray (2004:40) associate this point type with the Late Woodland Period and Mississippi Period.
