These grooved axe fragments get their name from the hafting groove that encircles all or 3/4 of the body of the axe. Axes like these are made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final state. These were recovered from the Wullschleger site in Marshall County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1961. The site was occupied periodically from the Early Ceramic to the Late Ceramic periods.

Date: 1-1800 CE
