Bipoints Before Clovis

By Wm Jack Hranicky RPA

This website presents Bipoint Before Clovis by Wm Jack Hranicky RPA. The book discusses the earliest bipoints in the world, and how they came to the Americas over 35,000 years ago. The Solutrean connection is presented along with other possible entries to the U.S. Crossing the Atlantic from Europe 35,000+ years ago. This book covers the 23,000-year bipoint for off Virginia's shore and shown below, the 16,000 year bipoint from Florida.

The bipoint is first introduced on the Atlantic coast where this technology spread inland. These culture carriers are identified and described in ths book. For more on bipoints, select Bipoint button on the left of this page.

This ocala chert bipoint dates 16,400 years before present and is from Marion County, Florida. It measures L = 73, W = 37, T = 11 mm. It is the main bipoint from this publication. The date was determined by the Raman laser analytical technique.

The above bipoint was compared to a Florida Clovis point. The paleo-point was assigned a 11,000 year date. This comparison produced the early date for the Florida bipoint.

The bipoint book contains bipoints from most of the states. Photographs, descriptions, measurements, references, and much more are contained in the book.
