Dark grey quartzite Orient Fishtail point (3,200 - 2,600 B.P.) with a lanceolate (leaf-shaped) blade, weak shoulders, and a flat base.
During the Early to Middle Woodland, the Wampanoag and other Indigenous people created new types of points, utilizing more local stone resources as they settled into more defined territories. They also developed new, smaller types specifically for arrows. Orient Fishtail points were based on earlier Susquehanna points but with a much narrower blade. The points you see here are all made of quartz and quartzite, which can be found in Patuxet.
