These six projectile points were excavated in 1973 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists at a Cuesta phase site in Labette County. The site was occupied during the Early Ceramic period. The top row shows a corner-notched dart point and a corner-notched arrow point, both made of Permian chert. Dart points were attached to the fore shaft of a throwing spear and propelled by using a spear thrower or atlatl. The bottom row, from left to right, shows a corner notched-arrow point fragment made of Permian chert; a side- and basal-notched arrow point fragment made of heat-treated Permian chert; a complete corner-notched arrow point made of heat-treated Permian chert and a corner-notched arrow point fragment.

Date: 500-1000 CE
