This mano was recovered from the surface of a Saline County archeological site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Manos were the upper, hand-held millstone used for grinding foods and pigments. Groundstone tools like this one are made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final state. The site was occupied during the Upper Republican and Smoky Hill phases during the Early and Middle Ceramic periods.

Date: 1-1500 CE
