This Desert Side-Notched projectile point was recovered from the Native American rancheria at Mission Santa Clara, during an archeological dig in 2012. Often classified as “flaked stone tools”, some colonial period examples are made from imported goods, in this case Chinese export porcelain. As this artifact demonstrates, Native people quickly incoproated foreign items into existing technological traditions. At Mission Santa Clara, projectile points recovered archaeologically are most commonly made of obsidian or chert, but in some cases were produced with non-lithic materials like porcelain and glass.
