This dart point, from the Munkers Creek phase, was collected from a feature at the William Young site in Morris County by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. During this time most of North America was in a prolonged drought so severe that Archeologists thought people left the Plains. Munkers Creek artifacts show that people stayed, but they may have chosen their habitats carefully. Munkers Creek projectile points, like this one, were launched using a spear thrower or atlatl.

Date: 3550 B.C.E. - 3050 B.C.E
