This Scallorn arrow point was recovered from the surface of a camp workshop site (14TO313) along the Saline River in Trego County during the 1997 Kansas Anthropolgy Training Program. It was knapped from a chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk or Smoky Hill Jasper and is identified by the two corner notches. Small arrow points like this were used to hunt large game such as deer or bison.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
