I love this piece. At first glance, it looks like a large knapping scrap piece. You can tell it's been worked a bit, but it's obviously not a spearpoint. It's when you hold it correctly that you realize what it is... Posted by Picasa

Do you know how they attached those things to the spears? Did they use leather or some similar animal product, or did they use grass or something?

Animal glues made from boiling connective tissues and sinew according to "Florida's First People" by Brown.
