These two dart points were recovered from 14CS355, a multicomponent (multiple occupations) Native American camp site in Chase County. Two radiocarbon dates are associated with the site: a hearth that was dated to 500 CE - 1055 CE and some charcoal dated to 1695 - 1745. The pinkish color of the smaller dart is a result of the flintknapper heat treating the material to improve the chert's knapping qualities. After knapping the dart points were mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl.

Date: 500 CE-1055 CE
