  • Stanly

    Stanly points are a distinctive type best known from the Carolina Piedmont region, but morphological look alikes are found, on a rare basis, in the Northeast. A small to medium sized broad point with strong shoulders and a slightly bifurcated stem. They are assigned Early-Middle Archaic in age. In New England they are regarded as Middle Archaic in age. There is also a New England Middle Archaic style known as Neville Points, which are quite similar, early examples of Nevilles have a bifurcated stem but are usually much narrower then Stanly's.
    Here is a description from a typology guide for Maryland:
