This dart point was recovered from the surface of a multicomponent (multiple occupations) camp site in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The tip has been broken on this dart point made of Permian chert. The style is similar is similar to a dart point style called Munkers Creek, which dates to the Late Archaic. If so, this artifact would likely be one of the oldest in the site collection. 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: 1-1500 CE
