These six arrow points were recovered from excavations during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Programs at the Tobias site in Rice County. The Tobias site is a Late Ceramic period proto Wichita village site that had dense artifact deposits (including chain mail), house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. All of the arrow points are side notched, which aid in the hafting of the arrow points to the arrow shafts. The arrow points were manufactured on a variety of material, such as Alibates from the Canadian River of Texas, Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk from western Kansas, and other cherts.

Date: 1400 CE-1600
