Lar Hothem, author of the bestselling series, Indian Artifacts of the Midwest, and several other books on arrowheads, pipes, and trade relics, is widely known for his research in the field of Indian artifacts. His latest book, complete with more than 2,200 color photographs, features the highly valuable chipped points and blades, plus many of the sometimes overlooked minor tool types. All of the basic Paleo artifacts and classes are shown and described, and interesting facts about ancient Paleo lifeways, supported by archaeology, are provided. Sections on discoveries and auction results will be of interest to the reader. Current values for Paleo artifacts of all types are given, and a large number of top-grade Paleo points, some never before published, are pictured. There are chapters of Paleo knives and non-point tools of all kinds, and tips on collecting these artifacts. This book contains the most Paleo artifacts pictured in any publication to date, including some of the more valuable fluted and lanceolate points in North America from some of the finest private collections. Paleo-Indian Artifacts offers a glimpse into an ancient world as revealed by the tools and weapons. 2008 values.

The finest North American Indian artifacts were made of organic materials, and luckily many survive. Materials used include the most common, bone, plus antler, shell, fur, ivory, and horn. Artifact classes range from projectile points and awls to fishhooks, gorgets, beads, and more. Collectors today value such pieces because of their artistic beauty and rarity. Most of them were destroyed by natural processes over the centuries, so those that remain are treasured. Lar Hothem, author of the bestselling five-volume series Indian Artifacts of the Midwest, has once again produced a fantastic book for Indian artifacts collectors. Each artifact includes information on type or class, material, size, find-location, and (in most cases) an estimated value. Background information is included about these artifacts, including finds made throughout North America. Advertisements from early dealers are listed, as well as recent auction results. This book opens the window to a fascinating world of study and collecting. 2006 values.
