8-6—Prehistoric-pottery

One of these is a projectile point made of silicified stone, a type of rock where silica is introduced into another substance, turning it into a rock. Petrified wood is an example of silicified stone. The type of point is described archaeologically as a Brewerton Side Notched and dates to the Late Archaic period (c. 4300-3500 BC).

In addition to the projectile point, several large pieces of Native American pottery have been found in the feature.
