Today’s animation is an Adena point scanned at the New York State Museum (NYSM) in July 2014. An illustration of this point as a line drawing can be found on page 12 of William A. Ritchie’s (1971) ” A Typology of and Nomenclature for New York Projectile Points,” New York State Museum Bulletin Number 384.

It is not part of the photographs in Plate 1 on page 61 of Ritchie’s (1971) monograph.This point, as well as others from Ritchie’s (1971) monograph, were scanned to aid in the creation of a digital projectile point typology funded by the Department of Defense’s Legacy Program, as detailed here.
