- Time Period : 8000-2300 B.P.
- Location : Tampa Bay Area northward into Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina.
- Shape : Auriculate
A medium size, thin, narrow, auriculate, serrated, triangular point with expanding auricules and a concave base. Hafting area is not well defined and can be lightly ground. Blade edges are serrated (see Santa Fe) and are resharpened on each face rather than the usual Dalton procedure of beveling on opposite faces. Note: This type along with the Santa Fe point have been confused with a much earlier Dalton type found in Northern Florida into southern Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. Compared to the Dalton type, the Tallahassee is narrower and much thinner and has less patination. The Dalton is a heavier point being thicker and wider with heavy grinding around the entire basal area. The blade edge serrations are formed differently than on Dalton points
