Farpoint Clovis Spear Point MS-220
5 ¼" L x 2" W
11,000 YA. The 5 ¼-inch Farpoint Clovis spearpoint was found in 2005 by Edgar Perez at a residential construction site in Malibu. The first such artifact found on the West Coast, the Clovis spearpoint indicates the presence of Clovis people 11,000 years ago and raises questions about the origins of the earliest inhabitants of the Americas. It has been thought that the earliest settlers came from Siberia, where Clovis artifacts have yet to be found. There is now speculation that the earliest settlers arrived on the East Coast, having crossed the Atlantic from southwestern Europe when land masses were closer together more than 16,000 years ago. It is currently curated at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Bone Clones is fortunate to have been given the opportunity to share this extremely rare find with the anthropological community.
