These two corner notched arrow points were recovered from the Anthony site in Harper County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2012. The notches aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft. The smaller, pink arrow point is made of local Florence chert from the Flint Hills region and gets its pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. The larger, black arrow point is made of an unknown chert type. The Anthony site dates to the Bluff Creek complex in the Middle Ceramic period. Bluff Creek people practiced a mixed economy of hunting, gathering, and some horticulture.

Date: 1100-1300 CE
