Contracting stem dart point, the only projectile point found at the Paradise site. This Middle Archaic point shares characteristics of three defined styles, Langtry, Jora, and Arenosa. It most closely resembles the latter two styles, Arenosa and Jora, which are both poorly defined types. Ohlís report includes a thorough review of the regionís contracting stem dart points, of which there are at least two more defined styles (Val Verde and Almagre). All are thought to date to the Middle Archaic and perhaps can be best thought of as variations on a theme. Center for Big Bend Studies, SRSU.
