|Recycled Point. Take a close look at this battered Martindale dart point from the Honey Creek site. The white speckled area near the center is patinated, meaning that this surface has weathered and aged. In contrast, the edges of the blade (upper part) of the dart point lack patina and are fresh looking. Notice also the inward curve segment on the irregular right-hand edge. Now turn to the “Prehistoric Recycling” section of the text and read an interpretation based on these details. TARL archives.
