You are not logged in. If you would like to be able to edit the points you submit at a later date, please take a moment to register here. Once logged in, you will be able to update the information on any projectile points you submit.
Refer to these guidelines when filling out the form to submit projectile points to the database. You may also get an idea of the sort of information people are entering by taking a look at the gallery and map. If you have any questions that we have not answered, please contact Eleanor Breen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please fill out the form as completely as possible with the information you have available. Not all fields will necessarily be applicable to your point (e.g. fields like Archaeological Context, Project Name/Number, and Context Date will only be applicable to archaeological finds and not necessarily museum objects). Any information that you are able to input is useful. Of course, the more complete your form, the better!
The object should be fully cleaned and visible and the image cropped to show only the point.
It is recommended you crop the image as close to square as possible with the point in the center. Images which are not square will automatically be squared and cropped.
For best quality, images should be larger than 400x400 and smaller than 10MB.
Images should be .jpg, .jpeg, .png, or .gif.
Feel free to watermark or add a credit line to your projectile point image.
Location: We do not ask for exact coordinates, as this could be sensitive information. You must provide at least the state and country where the point was found. You may provide the city and county if known. If the point was found outside of the United States, please select 'Not USA' for the state.
The Collections Management Committee of the Council of Virginia Archaeologists, the Commonwealth's professional archaeology organization, created Culture in Stone to collect, disseminate, and promote research on projectile points.
