This mano was recovered from excavations during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Programs at the Tobias site in Rice County. The Tobias site is a Late Ceramic period proto Wichita village site that had dense artifact deposits (including chain mail), house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Manos were likely used as the upper hand-held millstone for grinding foods and pigments. This mano was only used on one side and has some damaging from farming activities.

Date: 1400 CE-1600
