Pieces of this pottery vessel were found at the Arrowhead Island Archeological site in Coffey County. Archeologists reconstructed what was possible and then used these portions as an example to complete the vessel with plaster. The Arrowhead Island site is a village site of the Early Ceramic Period and the Kansas City Hopewell culture. Holes were drilled in the pot by its owner so that cracks could be laced up to mend the pot.

Date: 1 CE-1000 CE
