These three chert chipped stone tools were recovered from the surface of an Early Ceramic period camp site in Bourbon County. Shown are two side notched, or Scallorn arrow points. The pinkish color of the chert is a result of the flintknapper heat treating the material to improve the chert's knapping qualities. The larger piece was also a corner notched arrow point, but had been modified into a drill, likely after it broke. Drills were used to bore holes in softer material.

Date: 1 CE-1000 CE
