This stemmed dart point and two bifaces were recovered during the 1997 Kansas Archeological Training Program field school at the Garret Site in Trego County. The artifacts are made of Smoky Hill silicified chalk, a good quality knapping material that is exposed in linear beds in northwestern Kansas and western Nebraska. The bifaces could have been used as a cutting tool or, with more work, turned into specific tools.

Date: 2000 BCE-1000 CE
