10,000-year-old fluted spear point found in Ohio

A volunteer working with an Ashland University professor found the broken point last month. It has distinctive vertical grooves, or flutes, at its base, and that means it is far older than most flint arrowheads and spear points found in Ohio.
It offers rare proof that the Paleo-Indians who hunted mastodons in Ohio during the last ice age sometimes used the rock shelters that dot the state.
