These five arrow points were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site in Lyon County and donated in 1958 to the Kansas Historical Society. The projectile points date approximately to the Early and Middle Ceramic periods. All five are made of Permian chert. Shown are two corner-notched, two side-notched, and one triangular shaped arrow points. Two 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: 1-1000 CE
