This corner-notched dart projectile point was recovered from excavations at 14EL313 in Ellis county. The occupation site, excavated at the 2015 Kansas Archeology Training Program, recovered many arrow points, but only this single 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). The Kraus site is part of the Keith Phase occupation in western Kansas which dates between 500 and 1100 CE.

Date: 500-1100 CE
