This granite celt was recovered from the surface of a Middle Ceramic period camp site in Ottawa County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The site may have had the remains of a least one house. This celt was made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape then grinding and polishing it into its final shape. Most likely it would have been inserted into a wooden handle.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
