This assortment of five arrowpoints was recovered from site 14CF416, a camp site in Coffey County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2015. The two corner notched points on the left date to the Early Ceramic Period (1 CE-1000). The two side notched points in the middle date to the Middle Ceramic Period (1000-1500) and the Fresno point of the far right dates to the Late Ceramic Period (1500-1800). The pinkish color of two of the points indicates they have been heat treated to improve their knapping qualities.

Date: 1 CE-1800
