Where can you learn to make your own "Clovis" style stone spear points? In the "PaleoPoints Discovery Club" ... here are our 10 weekly reports: "Progress?" Whether brand new or veteran, almost every flint knapper whom I know is eager to try his hand at making "Clovis" points ... often beginning before learning all the necessary skills. Why is this such a universal objective? Very few other "Stone Age" artifacts have captured the sustained interest of "Space Age" wilderness and primitive skills craftsmen to the extent which we see enjoyed by ancient "Clovis" spear points. The "PaleoPoints Discovery Club" specializes in learning, understanding and practicing the flint knapping skills used by the "Clovis" culture to produce these uniquely styled projectile points ... one of the most recognizable and influential styles of hunting weapon handed down from that pioneering population who explored all of North America at the end of the most recent "Ice Age." This book compiles the several "Progress?" newsletters, about making your own "Clovis" style spear points, as provided to subscribers of the "PaleoPoints Discovery Club." It also presents a thorough series of photographs, throughout the book, made to illustrate the steps in the making of a "Clovis" style spear point. This spear point was made on May 23, 2015, by the author, F. Scott Crawford, from a spall of Arkansas Novaculite, for one of the members of the "PaleoPoints Discovery Club."
