These vessel fragments were recovered from the Buresh site, a Middle Ceramic village in Sumner County. The two arrow points shown in the top row are identified as Harrell points by their single side and base notches. The three Washita points in the middle row are identified by their hafting notches that are generally high on the blade and the two unnotched, triangular arrow points on the bottom are identified as Fresno points. All are made of local Flint Hills region cherts, three with a pink cast indicating they were heat treated during an early stage of its manufacture to improve the chert's knapping qualities.

Date: 1100-1500 CE
