These six projectile points were recovered from excavations in 1973 at the Harmon Site #2 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. The Harmon Site #2 is a camp site in Labette County with occupations during both the Archaic period and the Middle Ceramic period. This multiple occupation is reflected in some of the projectile points recovered at the site. The top row shows three corner notched and one side notched complete and fragmented dart points. They were mounted to a dart fore shaft and then thrown with an atlatl. The bottom row shows two corner notched arrow points. All six of the points display varying degrees of heat-treating to improve the knapping qualities.

Date: 7000 BCE-1500 CE
