This large Archaic dart point is 11.3cm long and 5.4cm wide. It was collected from Elk County and donated in 1959 to the Kansas Historical Society. The dart point has a parallel stem. 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: 8000-2000 BCE
