This celt was found at the Trowbridge archeological site (14WY1), in Wyandotte County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1973. Trowbridge is a Kansas City Hopewell site from the Early Ceramic Period. During this time archeologists find evidence of houses, cultivated plants, the bow and arrow, and decorated pottery. This celt was made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape then grinding and polishing it into its final shape. Most likely it would have been inserted into a wooden handle.

Date: 1 CE-250 CE
