Description: Newnan points are typically large, broad, well made triangular blades. Examples range in size from 1.5 to over 5 inches in length. Larger blades are more typical of those dating to the Middle Archaic period. The shoulders meet the stem at less than a 90 degree angle. The angles of the shoulder and stem juncture separate the Newnan, Marion, and Alachua types. The stem is tapering to straight with a rounded or flat basal edge. The size of the stem in relationship to the blade separates the Newnan point from the Hillsborough point (not typically found in Georgia).
