This large side-notched dart point was recovered from an archeological site in Chase County. It is made of local Flint Hills region chert. 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 a atlatl (spearthrower). The site is a multicomponent site, meaning it had multiple occupations.

Date: 1E-1000 CE
