Abstract
The discovery of Paleoindian sites across the Southeast has revealed a substantial presence of
blades, and blade cores. While fluted points have been extensively recorded as part of the
Paleoindian Database of the Americas, less research has considered the role of blades in such
contexts. This paper presents the formation and development of a Clovis blade database to
account for the distribution of these artifacts across the Southeast U.S. A. Technological and
morphological analysis of a sample of blades from this dataset demonstrates patterns of variation
when compared with blades from known Quarry Sites in the Central Savannah River Valley.
