Dart Points from 14LV406

Dart Points from 14LV406
Date: 1-1000 CE
These two dart points were collected from an archeological site in Leavenworth County and donated in 2018 to the Kansas Historical Society. One corner-notched dart was heat treated prior to its completion to improve the knapping qualities of the Permian chert. Later it was reworked, possibly after a break. The other dart point also shows a very small amount of heat treating, perhaps accidental, and has a parallel stem.


Dart Points from 14WC408

Dart Points from 14WC408
Date: 1000-1500 CE
These three fragmented dart points were collected from an archeological site near the Smoky Hill River in Wallace County and donated in 2018 to the Kansas Historical Society. Two of the darts have expanding stems, the third has a parallel stem. Dart points would be mounted to the dart foreshaft, which would in turn be connected to the dart shaft. The assembled dart would then be thrown with an atlatl (spear thrower).


Dart Points from Greenwood County

Dart Points from Greenwood County
Date: 1000 BCE-500 CE
These six dart points were collected from Greenwood County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. They show some of the different styles of projectile points that were present during the late Archaic to Early Ceramic Periods. Archeologists often identify these points based on the stem type: contracting stemmed, parallel stemmed, expanding stem, corner-notched and side-notched. Dart points would be mounted to the dart foreshaft, which would in turn be connected to the dart shaft. The assembled dart would then be thrown with an atlatl (spearthrower).


Dart Points from Kearny County

Dart Points from Kearny County
Date: 1500 BCE - 1000 CE
The three different styles of dart points shown here are part of the Hedge Collection, donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2016. They show an expanding stemmed/corner-notched dart point, a parallel stemmed dart point, and a contracting stemmed dart point. Dart points would be mounted to the dart foreshaft, which would in turn be connected to the dart shaft. The assembled dart would then be thrown with an atlatl (spearthrower).


Lithic Tools from 14WY405

Lithic Tools from 14WY405
Date: Unknown
These three chipped stone tools: a broken parallel stemmed dart point, an ovate knife, and a triangular knife, were recovered from an archeological site in Wyandotte County. The artifacts, in addition to other items, were donated in 2018 to the Kansas Historical Society.


Projectile Points from 14WY408

Projectile Points from 14WY408
Date: Unknown
These five dart points were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupation) archeological site in Wyandotte County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2018. Shown are one corner-notched arrow point, one contracting stemmed dart and three possible Nebo Hill points, named after the type site in Missouri.


Stemmed Arrow Point from the Radio Lane Site, 14CO385

Stemmed Arrow Point from the Radio Lane Site, 14CO385
Date: 1400-1725 CE
This arrow point was recovered at the Radio Lane site, a large Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village in Cowley County. The point has a parallel stemmed base and is made of local Florence chert from the Flint Hills region. The point gets its pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated at the site in 1995.


Stemmed Dart Points from 14DP1302

Stemmed Dart Points from 14DP1302
Date: Unknown
These three dart points were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) archeological site in Doniphan County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The dart points have parallel stems, though the light colored dart appears to be both expanding stemmed and parallel stemmed. All of the darts were manufactured on Permian chert. After knapping the dart points were mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl.
