This modified bone tool was recovered from a site in Edwards County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1995. Originally it was likely either a deer or bison scapula that was modified into a hoe. At some point the hoe broke and this piece was then modified into a scraping too, as is evidenced by the beveled edge. The donor of the piece may have varnished the tool. There are also fibers adhering to the back of the tool.

Date: 1000 CE-1800
