Eden points are part of what is known as the Cody Complex.  They are found with Scottsbluff points and Cody knives.  They date from around 8,550 to 8,000 years ago and are mainly found on the High Plains.  They are best know from bison kill sites in Wyoming (eg. Horner site) and Colorado (eg. Olsen-Chubbuck site).  Eden points are one of the best made and were produced by highly skilled knappers.

Made by Bruce Bradley in Colorado December 2020.
