Fully-Grooved Maul from the Killdeer Site, 14CO501
Date: 1500-1725 CE
The fully-grooved maul, made of limestone, was recovered from the Killdeer site in Cowley County. The maul was used as a hammer and the groove around the middle would have been used to haft it onto a handle. The maul was made by pecking and grinding it into its final shape. The Killdeer site was the location of the 1994 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school, a joint venture between Kansas Historical Society archeologists and volunteers from the Kansas Anthropological Association. The site was a Lower Walnut focus Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) site in Cowley County with numerous pits, basins and post molds.

Pipe Blank from the Kohr Site, 14SA414
Date: 780-860 CE
This pipe blank was collected in the 1930s from Kohr House No. 1 at a large village in Saline County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1971. The limestone pipe blank has numerous scratch marks, perhaps part of the incomplete finishing, and a groove below the bowl rim. It has one side partially spalled and was broken into two pieces and glued by the donor. The Kohr site was occupied by Smoky Hill aspect people and had several rectangular houses. Radiocarbon dates on maize indicate it was occupied during the Early Ceramic period.
