Early Woodland Points

[Southern Ontario Projectile Points] [London Chapter Menu]


The people of the Early Woodland Period were starting to show evidence of communal organisation or "micro-bands" but only seasonally, congregating for a time and then dispersing. Territories are being defined. Along with ceremonial burials cemeteries begin to appear. Onondaga is the preferred raw material in the manufacture of stone tools. Drills and end-scrapers are being manufactured. An important trait to the Woodland period is with the appearance of pottery.
