This basal notched dart point fragment was recovered from a camp site in Montgomery County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1976. The deep basal notches nearly parallel the stem. Dart points such as this one are often typical of the middle Archaic period. 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).

Date: 4000- 2000 BCE
