These three hoes were recovered during excavations in 1983 at the Crandall site. The Crandall site is a Late Ceramic period camp site in Rice County occupied by Great Bend aspect (protohistoric Wichita) peoples. The hoe's maker removed the long spine that runs the length of the scapula (shoulder blade), beveled and sharpened the edge, and hafted it to a handle.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
