These three arrow points were recovered from the Anthony site in Harper County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2012. Archeologists identify Huffaker arrow points by their double side-notches and single base-notch. These are made of local Florence chert from the Flints Hills region and get their pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. 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
