This mano was collected from the surface of a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site in Saline County and was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2017. The mano was likely used as the upper hand-held millstone for grinding foods and pigments. The mano was made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final shape. Later farming activities impacted the artifact, leaving what archeologists call plow scars.

Date: 1-1500 CE
