Sandstone grinding slab fragment, consisting of burned and unburned fragments (meaning the artifact broke in Late Archaic times and one of the fragments was reused as a cooking stone); and a hematite fragment from the Late Archaic component at the Richard Beene site. Plant foods, possibly nuts from the floodplain or root foods, seeds, or perhaps prickly pear fruit, from the terrace were likely ground on slabs.
