This arrow point was collected from the Plowboy site in Shawnee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The Plowboy site was home to the Kansa, the Potawatomi, and Euro-Americans. At various times, the site contained a farm, a trading post, and a post office with nearby military trails, Mormon routes, a railroad and the California-Oregon trail. This arrow point is what archeologists call corner notched. The notches aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
