These three side notched arrow points were among the many recovered from the Sharps Creek site during excavations in 1968 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. The Sharps Creek site is a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. The two points on the left were made of Permian chert. The far left point was heat-treated prior to its completion in order to make a better knappable chert. The point on the right was manufactured on a chert called Alibates that can be found in the Canadian River in Texas.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
