An Introduction to the Ripley P. Bullen Projectile Point Type Collection

Dr Ripley

Dr. Ripley P. Bullen collected information about Florida Projectile Points from avocational and professional archaeologists for decades. First presenting his typology in the 1960s this work was meant as a starting point to understand stone tool types that could be refined and built upon through the years (See Bullen History).

This illustrated version is something both groups have shown an interest in for years and why we have photographed each of the over 600 projectile points that have come to be referred to as the Bullen Projectile Point Type Collection.

We hope this highly sought after resource will be of use. It is not meant to be a treatise on the state of stone tool typology but rather a simple reference tool for comparative research and researchers. The collection is comprised of 620 points dating from the Paleoindian period to the Contact Period.
