  • Rossville

    The Rossville point is an Early-Middle Woodland form that displays a triangular blade, and long tapering stem, often with no shoulders present, or very slight shoulders. These can be confused with middle Archaic Stark points, but in general shoulders are somewhat better defined in Starks and Rossville stems are usually longer. Triangular blade and long tapering stem produce a diamond shape projectile.
