Summary

This presentation will focus on the analysis of Projectile Points recovered in excavation at Eagle Rock Shelter that date from 13,000 to 3,000 BP. Eagle Rock Shelter is located in west central Colorado on the east side of the Gunnison Gorge. Eagle Rock contains occupation horizons dating from 13,000 to 150 BP. The shelter contains a full range of projectile points dating from the Paleo to Proto-Historic Period. In this presentation we will examine some of the size, shape, and structural traits of projectile points noted in the horizons that date from the Paleo to the Middle Archaic period at the site. We will emphasis what we consider to be distinctions in the projectile point assemblage at the site and briefly compare the projectile points to other similar dated points found in the region.
