This Munkers Creek Axe and gouge were collected from the Foltz site, a Native American camp site in Wabaunsee County with multiple occupations from the Archaic to the Middle Ceramic periods. They were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2018. During this time in the Archaic period 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 were used for felling trees and woodworking. Munkers Creek gouges likely were used to modify wood and bone.

Date: 4000 BCE-3800 BCE
