This dart point was excavated in 1985 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists from the historic Jotham Meeker Farmstead site in Franklin County. Archeologists often identify projectile points based on their stem types. This dart point has an expanding stem with a fractured base. After knapping the dart points were mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl. This dart point was recovered near a cluster of prehistoric pottery, north of the cellar and helps to document a prehistoric presence at a historic site.

Date: 4000 BCE-1 CE
