This small piece of pottery was recovered from excavations at 14EL313 during the 2015 Kansas Archeology Training Program. After cleaning the sherd very carefully, a volunteer discovered that it showed three different areas or zones of decorations: a punctate filled zone (tiny indentations), a smooth zone bordered by two straight lines, and a small indication of parallel diagonal lines. This pottery may have arrived at the Keith Phase site as a trade item.

Date: 1000 CE
