These two dart point fragments were recovered from the surface of a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site in Elk County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1975. Both fragments were manufactured on Permian chert and both have been heat treated prior to their completion in order to make a better knappable chert. After knapping the dart points were mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl.
