Hanna   4,100-3,700 B.P.

Hanna points have straight converging and/or incurving blades. Hanna points display straight, inward-sloping and distinct barbed shoulders. They also have an expanding stem with a shallow notched or straight thinned base.  The original specimen was 25 mm or more in total length.  The blade was 13.5 mm or more in maximum breadth and 3.5 mm or more in maximum thickness. They are usually pressure-flaked and lenticular in cross-section.  The base is notched, or thinned, by pressure flaking on both faces from the base to the tip.  The sides of the stem are smoothed by grinding.  Wheeler, R.P.
