These fragments of a Great Bend aspect vessel were discovered at an Indian camp site in Marion County. The site, 14MN328, was excavated in 1986 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and Kansas Anthropological Association volunteers. The fragments were discovered in a bell-shaped pit feature and refitted later. The lugs protruding from below the rim may have been used as decoration or to suspend the vessel over a fire. The lugs were attached using rivets made of clay, one of which can be seen at the broken edge of the vessel.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
