These seven arrows points were just a few of those recovered from the surface of the Lindeman site in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The site was occupied periodically from the Early Ceramic period through the Late Ceramic period. During one of these occupations there may have been at least two houses on the site. All of the arrow points are manufactured on Permian chert. The pink color of one of the side notched arrow points is the result of having been heat-treated prior to their completion in order to make a better knappable chert. Five of the arrow points are side notched, one is corner notched and last arrow point is stemmed. The notches and the stem aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft.

Date: 1 CE-1800
