Polishing Stone

_BRC6552.jpg ThumbnailsRubbing Stone

This small, round stone found on the surface of the site may have been a smoothing or polishing stone, tools used most commonly in pottery manufacture.

Other ground stone artifacts recovered from the site include grinding tools, such as manos and metates, used to process seeds, corn, and other foods, and abrading tools used in stone tool manufacture and perhaps hide processing.
