Any ideas out there what type bifacial projectile this is. It was found in basal fluvial gravels capped by alluvial, overbank, fine-grained sediments dated to ca. 13,000 CALYBP.

Thanks,

Judging by the lowered edge and the platforms it's a biface that's just getting into the preform stage, I don't see anything about it that indicates any particular age, could be most any period.
