This nearly complete corner notched arrow point was found at the Two Snake Hoyt Hill site in Rawlins County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2016. The site was possibly a workshop based on a lithic scatter that was recorded on the site's surface. This arrow point was manufactured from a chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk. Archeologists consider corner notched points to be the earliest form of arrow points that are found in the Great Plains. The notches aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft.

Date: 1 CE-1000 CE
