This basin type grinding slab was recovered from excavations at 14SA415 in the 1970s and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. This slab is the lowermost millstone for grinding foods or pigments by hand. It was recovered just a few feet away from a central hearth in a lodge occupied during the Smoky Hill phase of the Middle Ceramic period in Saline County.
