This obsidian arrow point was recovered at the Larcom-Haggard site, a Lower Walnut focus Great Bend aspect site in Cowley County. There is no natural source of obsidian in Kansas, so it was likely traded from a volcanic source such as the Yellowstone region of Wyoming or Taos, New Mexico. The village was rediscovered next to an old river meander with a modern gravel quarry greatly impacting the site. The people that lived in the village are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated there in 1996.

Date: 1400-1725 CE
