A distinctive polyhedral core, from which a Clovis knapper removed a series of long, paralell-sided flakes (blades), was found in Zone 4. The blades could either be used as tools for cutting and slicing or could be knapped further and shaped into bifaces, projectiles, and other tools. The core has been "exhausted," or worked down to a the point where it was of little further use. Photo by Aaron Norment.
