These seven arrow points were recovered at the Tobias site in Rice County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Four of the arrow points are side-notched, one is basal-notched, and two are triangular. The notches aided in hafting the arrow point to the arrow shaft, but as the triangular shaped arrow points show, they are not required. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that has dense artifact deposits, house remains, and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
