These shell hoes were collected from House 1 at the Markley site, a Smoky Hill Phase occupation site containing two or more houses. The collection was donated in 1971 to the Kansas Historical Society. Shell hoes are a rare find at Kansas archeology sites. The mussel shell was perforated in the center and this hole served as a mount for the handle.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
