Cumberland point

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Cumberland point is a lithic projectile point, attached to a spear and used as a hunting tool. These sturdy points were intended for use as thrusting weapons and employed by various mid-Paleo Indians (c. 11,000 BP) in the Southeastern US in the killing of large game mammals.
