These two corner notched arrow points were recovered from a house site at the Forrest Site in Pawnee County. The site has a single date from bone collagen of nearly 1000 CE. 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
