John Broster and Mark Norton of the Tennessee Division of Archaeology recently provided recording forms on over 4000 Paleoindian projectile points from Tennessee. This kind of contribution is exactly what we are looking for, and will help ensure that this web site becomes a valuable resource for Paleoindian researchers around the world. Our sincere thanks to Mark and John.
