  • Perkiomen

    Perkiomen points date to the Transitional Archaic and are part of the Susquehanna Broadpoint tradition. They have very large notches, creating a small base in relation to the blade size. They might be thought of as Susquehannas with exaggerated proportions.

    Here is William Ritchie's description of the type:
