These three projectile points were collected from an Archaic period kill site in Dickinson County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2016. All three projectile points are made of Florence chert that outcrops in the Flint Hills of Kansas and Oklahoma. Two of the points have expanding stems and the third has a contracting stem. 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).

Date: 7000-1 BCE
