Clovis blade core and two blades (removed from a different core) from Pavo Real. The site was one of the first places in North America where abundant evidence of Clovis blade technology was found. This technology allowed Clovis flint knappers to efficiently reduce nodules and small boulders of chert/flint into parallel-sided blades that could be turned into various kinds of tools.
