This groundstone tool was collected from the surface of a Middle Ceramic village site in Elk County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1975. The multipurpose tool was used as an abrader on two sides and as a mano, the upper hand-held millstone for grinding foods and pigments. Some staining appears on three sides of the groundstone tool that may be pigment residue.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
