This small bone bead was collected from an archeological site in Dickinson County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2010. The bead was made from a section of bird bone, as bird bones are mostly hollow. The bird bone was scored, then cut or snapped, and had its edges smoothed, to form the tabular bead. The bead's color indicates it was calcined (burned by a strong heat), probably prior to modification.
