Noah Cordle, a 10-year-old boy from Virginia was playing on a New Jersey beach when he found a 10,000-year-old Paleoindian arrow point.
He thought it was a crab until he picked up the object. The boy showed it to his parents, Andrea and Brian Cordle, and his mother contacted the Archaeological Society of New Jersey to check it out.
"I was basically blown away. Finding these points is rare," says Greg Lattanzi, president of the Archaeological Society. The arrowhead probably dates back 8,000 to 11,000 years. The Cordle family intends to donate it to a museum.
