Shown are six of the many arrow points collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) camp site in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. Five of the arrow points are corner notched, typically used during the Early Ceramic period. The last arrow point is side notched, more typical of the Middle Ceramic period. Four arrow points get their pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities.

Date: 1-1500 CE
