These two bone needles were excavated between 1936 to 1940 at the Whiteford (Price) Archeological Site, a Middle Ceramic Period village site in Saline County. The site was occupide by people ancestral to the Pawnee tribe. The artifacts were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1971. Needles such as these were manufactured from a bone splinter, then sharpened and polished.
