This arrow point was recovered at the Radio Lane site, a large Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village in Cowley County. The point has a parallel stemmed base and is made of local Florence chert from the Flint Hills region. The point gets its pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated at the site in 1995.

Date: 1400-1725 CE
