Shown are six arrow points collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) archeological site in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. Five of the arrow points are corner-notched, typically used during the Early Ceramic period. The last arrow point is side-notched, more typical of the Middle Ceramic period. Four of the arrow points get their pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities.

Date: 1-1500 CE
