Indian Projectiles

These triangular points are of the type that would have tipped the arrows of Indians when the colonists arrived at Jamestown. Seventy-nine of these projectile points have been found within colonial contexts in the fort. Because many of these points are unbroken and are made of non-local stones, they may not represent arrows that were fired upon the colonists during times of Anglo-Indian unrest. Instead, they could have been on special gift arrows that were presented to the colonists.
