Bonifant/Bonnefont jasper is found as nodules in creeks near Macon (Powhatan County) Source: background map from US Fish and Wildlife Service Wetlands Mapper In Virginia, sources of jasper used for prehistoric stone tools include Flint Run (Warren County - site 44WR12), Brook Run (Culpeper County - site 44CU122), Arnold's Valley (Rockbridge County - site 44RB323), Bonifant (Powhatan County - site 44PO132), and sediments with eroded and transported cobbles in Virginia Beach (site 44VB5) and Accomack County (site 44AC136).

The Powhatan County site, also called Bonnefont, was discovered after examination of a nearby archeological site revealed such a large amount of debitage (chips of waste rock, created as cores were converted into tools).

There, they could trade items (such as rare shells that provided status), share information about good hunting/gathering places that year, and choose partners from outside the family.

Every Paleo-Indian band needed to resupply their stone tool kit, so gathering at the quarry may have been the most logical place.

the Williamson Farm, between Route 693 and Little Cattail Creek, is at the eastern edge of the Fall Zone Source: ESRI, Arc GIS Online In 1998, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) identified the Brook Run archaeological site on Route 3 (ten miles east of Culpeper, about 100 yards east of the intersection with Carrico Mills road, Route 669).

When VDOT routinely examined the planned route of a 4-laning of the Germanna Highway, the shovel test pits in a dense grove of cedar revealed a surprising concentration of debitage, or waste rock flakes that had been discarded, one foot below the surface.

Fairfax Public Schols, Stone Tools used by Virginia's First People All stone and bone tools were carried on the "seasonal round" as bands followed the migrations of animals and the ripening pattern of plants, so the weight of the tool kit was limited.

If needed, local rocks could be used for temporary tools, but a Paleo-Indian band might have planned to visit each of its preferred quarries once a year.

Since more than one tribal group used the same quarry, there was logic to decision of different groups to grab-'n-go after initial processing to create cores, rather than linger around a place where conflict could occur to produce the complete toolkit.
