These six gunflints are just a few of those recovered during excavations at Fool Chief's Village, a Kansa village site in Shawnee County. Fool Chief's Village was the site of the 2012 Kansas Archeology Training Program, though excavations continued into 2013. These six gunflints were all quarried and manufactured in southern England. The top row of gunflints were likely used in a pistol and both have two dorsal arrisses. The three on the left of the bottom row also have two dorsal arrisses. The lighter gray one on the right has a single dorsal arriss.

Date: 1830-1844
