Early Archaic projectile points mainly from private collections were used to investigate prehistoric hunting patterns in the lower Illinois Valley. A typology of Early Archaic projectile points was established and is illustrated in the volume. Focusing on single artifact types, this is one of the first studies of prehistoric hunting behavior without the attempt to identify or deal with habitation sites or artifact assemblages as analytical units. The significance of this approach alone makes the volume a must for the professional archaeologist's bookshelf. (Also published as Illinois Valley Archaeological Program, Research Papers, Vol. 3, Stuart Struever, Editor; and published jointly with the Illinois Archaeological Survey as its Monograph 2.)
