These three Fresno arrow points were recovered from excavations at the Sharps Creek site in 1968 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. The Sharps Creek site is a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. Archeologists identify Fresno points as being unnotched with a triangular shape. The three points are made of Permian chert. All were heat-treated prior to their completion in order to make a better knappable chert.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
