Shown is a large biface recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. The biface may have been stored for future use (what Archeologists call a cache), been meant for trade, or had some other significance we today do not know.

Date: 1650-1750
