These five Fresno arrow points were recovered from excavations at the Sharps Creek site during the 1993 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The Sharps Creek site is a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. Archeologists identify Fresno points as being unnotched with a triangular shape. The three points on the left are made of Florence chert. The two on the right are of an unknown chert. The far left point was heat-treated prior to its completion in order to make a better knappable chert.

Date: 1500 CE-1800 CE
