These two dart points were recovered from a work shop site in Franklin County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. Archeologists often identify projectile points based on their stem type. Both dart points have expanding stems. 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).
