Langtry Point

Chapman (1980:309 - 310) notes that Langtry points are found most frequently in the Ozark Highland region of Missouri. This artifact type is a contracting stemmed form. Chapman associates Lantry points with the Late Archaic Period (from 3000 to1000 BC) and the Woodland Period (1000 BC to AD 900). Sandstrom and Ray (2004:58) prefer the designation of Standlee points for this point type.
