This digital enhancement of a large group of Woodland Period Hopewell points from the Museum of Native American History gives them the appearance of a stained glass artwork, and was created exclusively for this 60th Anniversary journal. Their real sizes range from 8 ¾ to 2 ½ inches. Materials range from banded Reed Springs (Dickson), Kay County chert (Dickson point), colorful variegated Burlington (Gibson point), Harrison chert (North point), Jefferson City chert (Snyders point) as well as raw and heated varieties of Burlington chert.
