This large celt was recovered from a multicomponent camp site in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. Archeologists use the word multicomponent to indicate that a site has been occupied intermittently throughout time. This woodworking tool would have been manufactured by grinding or pecking it into a general shape, followed by polishing. It would have been hafted onto a handle and required periodic resharpening.

Date: 8000 BCE-1000 CE
