This small, unfinished celt was collected from the Foltz site, a Native American camp site in Wabaunsee County with multiple occupations from the Archaic to the Middle Ceramic periods. The celt was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2018. 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: 7000 BCE-1500 CE
