Manos, stones used as the topmost millstone for grinding foods by hand on a grinding stone or metate, can come in different shapes and sizes. These three were recovered from the Curry site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. The Curry site is a multicomponent (multiple occupations) village site in Greenwood County. Manos like these are made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final state.

Date: 1200 CE-1400 CE
