EXCELLENT HEAVY DUTY SOUTHERN KENTUCKY ARROWHEAD-AUTHENTIC INDIAN ARTIFACT.

THE HEAVY DUTY HAS NEVER BEEN ASSIGNED A FORMAL NAME BECAUSE NONE HAVE BEEN FOUND IN A DATED STRATIGRAPHIC CONTEXT. THE TYPE HAS MANY OF THE PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES OF POINTS WHICH DATE FROM THE EARLY AND MIDDLE ARCHAIC PERIOD AND IN ALL PROBABILITY BELONGS TO THAT TIME FRAME. ONLY ONE OR TWO HEAVY DUTY POINTS ARE TYPICALLY FOUND ON ANY GIVEN SITE AND THE POINT IS NOT A COMMON TYPE ANYWHERE IN ITS DISTRIBUTION RANGE. HEAVY DUTY POINTS ARE MOST COMMONLY FOUND IN OHIO, INDIANA, TENNESSEE, WEST VIRGINIA AND KENTUCKY; HOWEVER THEY ARE ALSO FOUND IN MOST ADJOINING STATES IN DIMINISHING NUMBERS. SOME FEEL THAT THE HEAVY DUTY IS A CLOSE RELATION TO THE KIRK SERRATED POINT TYPE AND MAY BE A SUB-TYPE OF THE KIRK STEMMED CLUSTER.

THIS POINT RECOVERED IN SOUTHERN KENTUCKY.
