Notes

Abstract:
Stone projectile point recovered from the Anderson Mound (Jungle Prada Complex), St. Petersburg, Florida. Referred to as a Lafayette point by archaeologists, it dates to about 1200 BC-AD 200 but was found in much later contexts dating to about AD 1000 during the Safety Harbor Period. It was probably an artifact found and reused by Safety Harbor people. Lafayette points are medium to large in size with distinctive corner notches. It is made from chert, a flint-like material found in Florida. Note the saw-like serrations on the edges indicating that it was probably used as a knife rather than as a projectile.
