Asymmetrical Brewerton Eared Triangle (5,000 - 4,000 BP) point with a concave base made of black rhyolite.
During the Archaic Period, the Wampanoag created many new types of points that reflect the changes in resource production and hunting. They replaced the lanceolate blades of the Paleoindian period with smaller triangular points. This Brewerton Eared Triangle is part of a larger group of points called the Brewerton complex. The Squibnocket Triangles shown here are a different type of triangular point that were very common throughout the Massachusetts region.
