These eight bifaces were recovered from a site in Crawford County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2015. The camp site was occupied periodically during the Early and Middle Ceramic Periods. All of the bifaces, chipped stone tools worked on both sides, have been heat-treated to improve their knapping qualities. Excepting the largest biface, all uniform in size and material, suggestion that possibly the bifaces were cached. A cache is a group of items stored hidden for future use.
