Mixed Dart and Projectile Points

Item

Title
Mixed Dart and Projectile Points
Description
In the past, these diminutive points have been refered to as "bird" or "dart" points. The general belief was that such small points, some that could fit onto the tip of a finger, were used on birds or small game. Recent studies, including the examination of small amounts of residual blood samples, indicate that deer and larger targets were easily dispatched with these smaller weapons.
