Shell hoes are a rare find at Kansas archeology sites. This artifact was recovered in 1963 from a Saline County site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The mussel shell was perforated in the center and this hole served as a mount for the handle. The hoe shows grinding and polish on the working edge.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
