These seven dart points are just a few of those collected at an Early Ceramic period camp site in Montgomery County and, in 1975, donated to the Kansas Historical Society. Three of the dart points get their pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. 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).
