Spear point

EricTheFarmer on serendipity:

We now have proof that there is more in our gardens than bermuda grass! While shaking the topsoil and worms out of a clump of grass, this large point fell out as well. Identified as a Table Rock point, this chert spear point would have been made during the Late Archaic period, over 4,000 years ago. Due to the size of the point (2") and an impact fracture at the tip, it is likely that this was a spear point that was either lost during a hunt or discarded afterwards.
