ARROWHEAD - The pointed tip of an arrow. If the means of propulsion cannot
with certainty be identified as a bow, the term projectile point is more
properly used. Arrowheads are sometimes mistakenly referred to as "birdpoints"
by native American artifact collectors. Larger points used for spears and
knives are often mistakenly referred to as arrowheads. Typically 1.5" or
shorter in length, .5" or less in width for flint arrowheads. BIRDPOINT - Collector slang for arrow point. A fallacy caused from the belief
that small arrow points were used only for the taking of small game due to their small size.
