High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - July 23, 1976, High Point, North Carolina Old Arrowhead discovered at City Lake by Ann Sjoerdsma Enterprise staff writer the big question that the enthusiastic archaeological diggers at High Point City Lake Are mulling Over now is a is it a Savannah River or a More desirable Kirk a the difference Between the two is a precious 6.000 years. The diggers have unearthed an Indian Arrowhead an artefact believed to have belonged once to indians of the Catawba Branch in the soil underneath the Quaker meeting House at City Lake by comparing it with known dated arrowheads. John Rauckman. Director of the High Point museum and supervisor of the digging at the meeting House has estimated the age of the piece to be either 2.000 years old it a Savannah River Arrowhead or 8,000 years old a Kirk Arrowhead. According to Bauckman an Arrowhead is identified by its general shape or design and its size. And named for the area in which it was found or for the person who found the first one of its kind Bauckman is satisfied that the descriptions of catalogued Savannah River and Kirk arrowheads match the appearance of the one he has found Bauckman and his company of diggers have been working at the meeting House about two weeks doing what he Calls Quot Salvage work Quot the building is scheduled to be renovated in about three weeks and Bauckman is trying to Salvage As much As he can from the soil before the reconstruction process begins. Barekman s interest in the project stems from the fact that the floor of the meeting House is a sealed floor that is. There is no sub Structure beneath it so the dirt has not been substantially disturbed this is one of the few sealed floors left standing in the he said the Only time it was opened was when the floor was rebuilt in the 1950s whenever you have an Opportunity to dig in a sealed floor or in one that yields this much chronology you take the soil beneath the Structure according to Bauckman.
