These two dart points were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) archeological site in Doniphan County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The dart points were made of Permian chert and show expanding stems. 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).
