A medium to large size, auriculate, fluted, lanceolate point with convex sides and a concave base that is ground. Most examples are fluted on both sides about 1/3 the way up from the base. The flaking can be random to parallel. Clovis is the earliest point type in the hemisphere. Clovis technology more closely matches European Solutrean forms than anywhere else. There is no pre-Clovis evidence here (crude forms that would pre-date Clovis). The first Clovis find associated with Mastodons was in 1979 at Mastodon State Park, Jefferson Co., MO. in the Kimmswick bone bed dated to 12,000 B.P. carbon years.
