These dart points were collected from an archeological site in Johnson County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2022. The darker point may have been what archeologists call and Adena point and is made of Burlington chert. It may have been reworked as a knife after it was broken. The other is a Gary point made of heated Florence chert that has been repeatedly resharpened, reducing it in size. Stone tools help reveal how these people lived and traveled, and how they differed from other groups. The Enright site is what archeologists call a multicomponent site, meaning it was occupied at various times, from approximately 10,000 years ago to today.

Date: 1500-100 BCE
