Shown are four young men excavating at the William Young site in Morris County, a concentration of chert at the bottom of Feature 131, and the north wall of a test pit. The William Young site was a Munkers Creek phase habitation site excavated by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. The site was occupied between 3550 BCE and 3050 BCE. 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.
