This celt, a woodworking tool, was recovered during excavations at the Union Pacific Railroad Depot in Lawrence, Kansas. This site served not only as a depot, but also had dwellings, a meat market, a saloon, a possible boarding house or hotel, a grain elevator and other commercial buildings located within the project area excavated in 1995 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. However, what makes a site attractive to one group of people, trails, resources, or location, can make it attractive to other groups, either later or, as in this case, earlier in time.
