This pipestone artifact was recovered from a site in Mitchell County that was occupied by people of the White Rock Oneota, a Late Prehistoric (1000-1650 CE) archeological complex. The soft, fine-grained material of the pipestone enabled the carver to shape and smooth the piece into a rectangle of unknown function. The site was excavated by the University of Nebraska and the collection was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1987.

Date: 1000 - 1650 CE
