Daub, like these pieces, is the hardened remains of a clay or soil plastered structure. The clay has stick or grass impressions from when it was plastered onto the framework of the structure. Hardened by fire, this type of artifact preserves well and can sometimes be the only archeological clue that a structure was once present. These examples came from a camp site in Labette County occupied multiple times from the 8,000 to 1,000 years ago.

Date: 8000-1000 years ago
