These three side notched arrow points were recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. These arrow points were recovered during the 1970 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The notches on the arrow points aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft. All three points were manufactured on a type of chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk.

Date: 1650-1750
