Her father lived his entire life in Western Maryland’s Washington County so Lisa contacted the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory (MAC Lab) for assistance in identifying the point. Patricia Samford, director of the MAC Lab identified the artifact as a Selby Bay/Fox Creek point, roughly 1000-2000 years old.
