These lice comb fragments were recovered from an archeological site in Morris County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Lice combs like these have long fine metal teeth used to remove lice infestations from the hair. The site had multiple occupations from the Archaic period to the late 1800s and was one of three large Kansa sites along the Neosho River occupied during the mid-19th century.

Date: 1847-1874
