These dart point fragments were recovered from the Estep archeological site in Montgomery County. Darts consist of three parts, the point, which 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). One has an expanding base style while the rest are all contracting stems. Estep is a multicomponent site, meaning it had multiple occupations. The site has been severely impacted by stream erosion.

Date: 1-1000 CE
