This celt was gathered from a multicomponent camp site in Doniphan County, occupied during the Archaic and Early Ceramic periods. It was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. Archeologists use the word multicomponent to indicate that a site has been occupied intermittently throughout time. This woodworking tool would have been manufactured by grinding or pecking it into a general shape followed by polishing. It would have been hafted onto a handle and required periodic resharpening.

Date: 6000 BCE-1000 CE
