These dart points were found at the Trowbridge archeological site (14WY1), in Wyandotte County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1973. Trowbridge is a Kansas City Hopewell site from the Early Ceramic Period. During this time archeologists find evidence of houses, cultivated plants, and decorated pottery. These broad dart points were flintknapped from non-local chert, mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl.

Date: 1 CE-250 CE
