The Yadkin is a large, symmetrical, and well made isosceles triangular point.
The Yadkin point dates to the Middle and extends into the Late Woodland period, 300 to 1300 CE.
The Yadkin is similar to the Levanna type defined by Ritchie (1961 revised 1971). The Levanna is a medium to large, fairly thin, triangular point with a concave base named for the Levanna Site, Cayuga County, NewYork.
