These three large bifaces were flaked into three different forms of maces. They all have pointed projections near one end with either serrations, rounded bulbous projections or plain edges. All of them were discovered in a cache with seventeen "swords." Hamilton reports that at least 15 stone maces were found in Craig Mound. Some of them were flaked, like these examples. The rest of them were polished to remove all or most of the flake scars. Maces in the eastern United States date to between A.D. 1000 to 1400. Their image appears on engraved shell and copper. Merriam reports that these maces are made of Mill Creek chert. Some of the polished examples were made of Kaolin chert. The longest mace in this picture measures 16 3/8 inches (41.6 cm) long.
