This bone needle fragment was just one of many bone tools that were recovered during excavation in 1995 at the Kermit Hayes No. 1 site. The artifacts were donated in 2007 to the Kansas Historical Society. The site, atop a ridge in Rice County, was a Great Bend aspect village. It is part of an Archaeological District for the National Registration of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. Though this needle was made from a small animal rib, often needles were manufactured from a bone splinter, then sharpened and polished.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
