These three projectile points were collected from a camp site in Wabaunsee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2018. Shown are two dart points, both corner notched, but one has been broken and the other modified. After knapping a dart point was mounted to the dart fore shaft, and then thrown with an atlatl. Also show is a corner notched arrow point, which would have been hafted onto an arrow shaft and shot with a bow. All three projectile points were manufactured on Permian chert.

Date: 2000 BCE-1000 CE
