The Munkers Creek phase describes a stone tool technology restricted primarily to the Flint Hills. During this time most of North America was in a prolonged drought so severe that Archeologists thought people left the Plains. Munkers Creek artifacts show that people stayed, but they may have chosen their habitats carefully. Munkers Creek axes, like these from the William Young site (14MO304) in Morris County, were used for felling trees and woodworking.

Date: 4000 BCE-3800 BCE
