Student Finds Artifact in NJ, donates to Smithsonian
Let’s throw things back a few millennia and unearth some ancient artifacts!
10-year-old Noah Cordle was on vacation with his family. He was boogie boarding in the water in Beach Haven when felt something poke his foot, and he initially thought it was just a crab. He noticed a dark color, and discovered it was an arrowhead.
The family brought the arrowhead to the Smithsonian where it was discovered to be a rare and “classic” Clovis point dating from 13,500 to 14,000 years ago.
Scientists believe the arrowhead was exposed during beach replenishment projects following Hurricane Sandy.
