Description

Native American arrowheads evoke imagery of the West, wild and untamed, where the Native Americans were challenged every day by the landscape. Through them, we can trace 12,000 years' worth of technological advancement in the Americas. Starting with the earliest precursors to the bow, simple lance and Atalatl points, and their related tools, we can follow from the Paleo Clovis hunters chasing mammoth, to their settling down and expanding their regional knowledge of the continent, to the bloom of agriculture and more sedentary lifestyles. Last but not least, come descriptions of the first true 'Arrowheads' that emerged around 1,500 years ago.show more

About Alexander C. Przygoda

Alexander C. Przygoda has spent the last 15 years examining artifacts from around the globe, with a focus on prehistoric North American flint and stone tools. To date he has examined or handled over 500,000 artifacts through his work in the prehistoric antiquities market. He has studied Anthropology and Geology at institutions across the U.S. with an interest in applying technology and knowledge gained from those experiences to the more abstract concept of artifact authentication. Having found his first arrowhead at the age of 12, he developed an appreciation for the first Americans. In addition he has published articles and provided lectures on topics in authentication. He currently resides in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, USA.show more
