This unique limonite celt was recovered during the 1994 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Killdeer site, since destroyed by construction. The Killdeer site was a Lower Walnut focus Great Bend aspect site in Cowley County with numerous pits, basins and post molds. This artifact was too soft to have actually functioned well as a celt. A celt, a woodworking tool, would have been either hand held or socketed into a handle. This "celt" was recovered from a cylindrical pit, which contained many tools.

Date: 1500 CE-1750
