Re: “Scientists have unearthed ancient artifacts that are upending the history of mankind

Being a flint knapper, archery deer/elk hunter my thoughts for the fluting of Clovis points differs a little from this information. Hunting the large ice age animals the need for a point to get deeper penetration to reach the vital organs is the only way to bring it down cleanly. The lungs of any animal is the best target resulting in a quick kill. Any technology to accomplish this would be a huge advantage. Maybe with the end of the ice age and the demise of the large animals the need for a supper penetrating projectile was not needed. If your hunting a food source that provides a huge amount of meat the need of large numbers of points is not there. Kind of quality over quantity. Shot placement and reaching the all vital lungs is the key to a successful hunt. The Colorado Denver museum of natural history had a mammoth on display and it had a Clovis point imbedded in the shoulder bone. This points out to me that the lungs were the intended target. Who cares if one would break a few to make a one shot kill point providing a huge advantage. I for one would not want to trail a pissed off wounded mammoth.
