Custer, Jay F. and Mellin, Glen S.  
Bulletin of the Archaeological Society of Delaware (Number 22, New Series; Winter 1986)
 Picture
Publisher: The Archaeolgical Society of Delaware, 1986 Wilmington, DE.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Soft cover 4to - over 9ľ - 12" tall "Analysis of 'Broadspears' from Delaware: Form, Function, and Distribution" by Jay F. Custer and Glen S. Mellin. "Ever since the publication of John Witthoft's (1953) important article 'Broad Spear Points and the Transitional Period Cultures'', archaeologists have noted the distinctive nature of the broad-blade bifaces that were manufactured and used int he Middle Atlantic region between 2000 B.C. and 1200 B.C. Because these artifacts look so different from the chipped stone tools that came before and after them, they have attracted numerous varied archaeological interpretations. 'Broadspears' have been part of hypotheses concerning migrations, trade and exchange, cultural 'traditions', and specialized tool functions. Unfortunately, many of these hypotheses, and arguments among the archaeologists involved, have been based on little or no data. In this paper we will address the issues of boradspear form and function by analyzing a sample of 599 broadspears from throughout Delaware. The distribution of sites with broadspears will also be considered.." 29 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.
