These two manos were collected from a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village in Wilson County and donated in 1984 to the Kansas Historical Society. Manos were used as the upper, hand-held millstone for grinding foods and pigments. The Neodesha Fort site was first investigated by archeologists in 1954, and was associated with many lodge depressions and at one time had an U-shaped earthwork.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
