This metal drive hook was recovered from the Fort Scott National Historic Site during excavations conducted there between 1968 through 1972 by Kansas Historical Society Archeologists. When Fort Scott was built it was on the western military frontier, but is now located within the city limits of Fort Scott. Drive hooks can have many purposes, but generally when they terminate in a point, as this one does, they are considered meat hooks.

Date: 1842-1853
