These lithic artifacts were collected from a multicomponent (multiple occupations) archeological site in Hamilton County and donated in 1975 to the Kansas Historical Society. Shown are a sample of different chert types in the collection including Smoky Hill silicified chalk, a good quality knapping material that is exposed in linear beds in northwestern Kansas and western Nebraska. Additionally there are a chalcedony-like chert, unknown cherts, and Alibates flint, a silicified or agatized dolomite from the Canadian River valley in the Texas panhandle.
