Description: Plainview projectile point base from Wupatki Pueblo, Wupatki National Monument. The material is an unsourced brown chert. The basal thinning on this point is reminiscent of Clovis fluting, leading some researchers to classify this point as a Clovis fluted point rather than a Plainview.

Collection: On display at Wupatki National Monument (catalog card).
