These abrader fragments were recovered from a Middle Ceramic period site in Crawford County. Archeologists call these abraders groundstone tools as they are shaped by grinding. The sandstone abraders could be used as pairs, one on each side, to smooth a wood shaft or individually to sharpen or smooth other items.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
