Archeologists do not always know what an artifact actually should be called. For example, the artifact shown here, manufactured from a piece of chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk, was described in the records as either a mid-section of a plano-convex tool or a Native Indian made gunflint. It was found at a site in Graham County, but the associated artifacts were not helpful in concluding what type of site it was or when it was occupied.
