In 2018, Coal Creek Research, Inc. (CCR) created and began development of the Colorado Projectile Point Database, a database of high-resolution scanned images of projectile points from both curated sites and private collections throughout the State of Colorado, U.S.A. The scanned images and their accompanying information are freely accessible to researchers. Several thousand projectile point images are currently available in the database, which is regularly updated as additional collections are scanned.

PRIVATE COLLECTIONS: For more information about the Colorado Projectile Point Database and how an individual can have their private collection included in this database (collector name remains anonymous), see the CCR Databases web page.

🚩  The database currently contains 11,031
projectile points.
