The Norse Spearpoint article is wrong.  That spearpoint was found by my grandfather, Albert Lewis, of Lyons, NY, when repairing a boat dock at Sodus Point, on Lake Ontario, working for the man named in the article.  He picked it up out of the stones in the water, about knee deep, while digging in the water to repair the foundation of the boat dock.  It did NOT come out of the ground.   He brought it home where everybody saw it, kept it a while, did some research to be sure what it was, then donated it to the museum in Lyons, NY where Albert Lewis lived.  The museum apparently credited it to the man who owned the boat dock..  Yes, it’s real, all my family have seen it in person.  Would have been an extremely valuable loss as the Indians did not have metal at that time.
