Projectile points are regularly recovered at the Lawson site. The two styles of points predominantly found are small, triangular and sometimes exhibit notches on the side of the base. The Lawson site is a fortified 16th century Indigenous site located at the confluence of Medway River and Snake Creek. The site has been known to archaeologists since the mid-1800s and is now an Ontario designated heritage site and part of the Museum of Ontario Archaeology’s grounds.
