This nearly complete hematite axe or celt was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. Hematite is a mineral form of iron oxide. A celt is an unnotched axe and this one was created by grinding away unwanted material and then polishing. Likely this celt was only used for special purposes or occasions.

Date: 6000 BCE-1 CE
