I love to look for Chert, the type of rock that this arrowhead was made from, whenever I visit High Mountain, but I never expected to find an actual arrowhead.
In fact, I have looked for arrowheads ever since I was a child, to no avail. So a pretty good day.
The Lenapes wintered in High Mountain's Franklin Clove in the late 1600s, so I figure the arrowhead might have been one of theirs.
I asked local historian and arrowhead expert Jack Goudsward if he could provide more information about the arrowhead. His reply was unexpected.
"Your point is a Levanna type of point. It is made of Black Chert. Its date range is from A.D 700 to around A.D. 1350. It is a nice point. Great find. "
