These five corner notched arrow points were recovered from the Anthony site in Harper County. The arrow points are made of Permian cherts which outcrop to the east. The notches aided in hafting the point to the arrow shaft. Though small and thin, they would have been extremely effective on the hunt. 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
