Alberta Projectile Points

A selection of projectile points from Alberta sites. The size of the points indicates their use. The largest points would have been used on spears and are the oldest in this collection. The medium sized points would have been more suitable for use with atlatl darts. These smallest points are the newest and would have been used on arrows.
