This Munkers Creek-like axe was collected from Wabaunsee County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2018. The Munkers Creek phase describes a stone tool technology restricted primarily to the Flint Hills. During this time most of North America was in a prolonged drought so severe that Archeologists thought people left the Plains. Munkers Creek artifacts show that people stayed, but they may have chosen their habitats carefully. Munkers Creek axes, like this one, were used for felling trees and woodworking.

Date: 3500 BCE-3050 BCE
