These 11 dart points were recovered from an archeological site along the Elk River in Montgomery County. All are made of Permian chert and seven were heat treated, a method to improve the knapping qualities of a chert which results in a pinkish color. Nine of the dart points are corner-notched, one has a contracting stem and another an expanding stem. The site had house remains and is considered to be part of the Pomona focus of the Early and Middle Ceramic period. Pomona focus sites are located in eastern Kansas and western Missouri.

Date: 700-1500 CE
