These six thin bifaces were collected from an Early Ceramic camp site in Elk County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1972 and 1975. A biface, like these, could have been used as a cutting tool or, with more work, turned into a specific tool. Five of the bifaces were possibly manufactured on Permian chert from the Flint Hills region of Kansas. Of these, four have been heat treated prior to being knapped in order to improve their knapping qualities. The mottle grey and white chert type is unknown.

Date: 1 CE-1000 CE
