The Corditaipe site is a Paleo-Indian encampment situated on a large glacial outwash terrace overlooking a tributary of the Mohawk River near Rome, New York. Recently discovered by a local collector, the site consists of four loci vaguely defined by low-density scatters of artifacts and debitage that occur within the plow zone. The collection includes two fluted points, 3 fluted points in process, 18 bifaces, about 114 unifaces and over 1000 pieces of workshop debris. Although most items are of local gray to black flints, there are significant quantities of Pennsylvania jasper and Normanskill flint in the assemblage.
