These flakes were recovered from a Prehistoric camp site on a bluff south of the Cimarron River in Grant County. Shown are five Alibates Agatized Dolomite flakes, two Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk flakes, two quartzite flakes, and one possible Knife River Flint. Alibates is from the Canadian River valley in the Texas panhandle, Knife River Flint is quarried in North Dakota, and Smoky Hill silicified chalk outcrops in west central and north central Kansas on into Nebraska. Thus, just a few flakes represent quite a large amount of trade and travel.
