These dart points were recovered from an archeological site in Johnson County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. The pinkish color of one dart point is a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. Dart points would be mounted to the dart foreshaft, which would in turn be connected to the dart shaft. The assembled dart would then be thrown with an atlatl (spearthrower).

Date: 1000 BCE-500 CE
