» Downloads & Basic Metadata


In this document, Richard Wheeler discusses ten projectile point types, and one pseudo-type, that were not addressed by Robert E. Bell and Roland Scott Hall in their description and illustration of forty-five projectile point types of the United States, published in 1953. Two types, Duncan and Hanna, recorded in Wheeler’s document were recently named and defined by Wheeler. Another, designated Agate Basin, will be described on the basis of specimens made available by Dr. Frank H.H. Roberts, Jr. The others have previously been named and described in the literature. The accompanying illustrations were prepared by Raymond Price, draftsman with the Missouri Basin Project of the Smithsonian Institution.
