These six dart points were collected from an Archaic period site in Doniphan County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The top row shows two expanding stem dart points flanking a large basal-notched dart. The bottom row, from left to right, shows a corner- and side-notched dart point, an expanding stem dart point and a contracting stem dart point. 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: 7000 BCE-1 CE
