These two arrow points were found near Fowler, in Meade County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1967. The smaller, corner notched point, is of a type considered by Archeologists to be the earliest form of arrow points found on the Great Plains. The larger, side notched point is an example of those used by Native Americans from about 800 years ago until they changed to metal arrow points in the 18th- and 19th-centuries. The notches aided in hafting the points to the arrow shaft.

Date: 1000 CE-1850
