These arrow points were recovered from an archeological site in Cowley County during survey in 1990 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The triangular points are made of local Flint Hills region chert and gets their pinkish color as a result of the material being carefully heated before manufacturing to improve the chert's knapping qualities. The site is a Lower Walnut focus Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita and Affiliated Tribes) site occupied during the Late Ceramic period.
