These alternately beveled knife fragments were recovered from the Majors site in Rice County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1982. Repeated sharpening on the knife's alternate sides created the bevels. The Majors site was a Great Bend aspect, Little River focus (ancestral Wichita) village that was occupied during the late 17th century based on southwestern pottery styles found at the site.

Date: 1541-1720 CE
