Grey rhyolite Madison point (1,100 - 300 B.P.) with straight sides and a concave base.
Wampanoag people created new types of Late Woodland points based upon earlier point forms, with triangular types being the most common. Madison points were based on earlier Levanna points. Some archaeologists view Madison points as tips for war arrows and Levanna points as tips for hunting arrows. Stone points were used up and into the Contact Period, as shown by this description from Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano: “Their bows are wrought with great beauty, and for the heads of them they use emery, jasper, hard marble, and other sharp stones, in the place of iron” (1524-1528).
