About

The Falls Projectile Point Project was launched by FOAS in March of 2016 in recognition of the diversity and unique composition of projectile point types and styles within the Falls area. The goal of the project is to identify, describe, and quantify the types of projectile points common to the Falls region over time. To do so, FOAS must capture as many examples as possible to establish a statistically meaningful study. It is planned that the study will include specimens from professionally conducted archaeological studies as well as those from private collections.

FOAS meets periodically under professional supervision to catalog, measure, describe, and photograph points from our area. We invite you to join us and bring your artifacts for study. We do NOT plan to keep or borrow any artifacts. If you bring them to us, you take them with you when you leave us. We do not demand exact locations where the points were collected, but the more information you can provide, the better for the study. Simply put, we welcome your participation in the project and hope that, collectively, we will all learn more about the early Native American occupations of this area. Meetings are typically, but not always, held at the offices of Corn Island Archaeology at 10320 Watterson Trail in Jeffersontown. Meetings times will be announced on this site.
