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 projectile points, like these from the William Young site (14MO304) in Morris County, were launched using a spear thrower. Munkers Creek drills likely were used to modify shell, hides, wood, bone or soft stone.

Date: 4250-2850 BCE
