Munkers Creek bifaces, like these four recovered from the William Young site in Morris County, could have been used as cutting tools, or, with more work, turned into more specialized tools. The Munkers Creek phase describes a stone tool technology restricted primarily to the Flint Hills. During this time most of North America was in a prolonged drought so severe that some archeologists thought people left the Plains. Munkers Creek artifacts show that people stayed, but they had to adapt by using many different types of animals and plants for food in a less productive environment.

Date: 4250-2850 BCE
