This deer mandible tool was recovered from the Shrope village site in Cowley County. Tools such as this could have been used as a hide scraper, a corn sheller, or as a tool to aid in planting seeds. The Shrope site, a large Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village, was excavated by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew in 1995. Forty-one archeological features, such as storage pits, hearths, and post molds, were uncovered at the site.

Date: 1400-1725 CE
