This fragment of a ceramic pot was recovered from the Wullschleger site in Marshall County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960. The rim sherd, from an Oneota jar (a wide mouthed vessel), has shell temper and an outcurving rim that is decorated with punctates on the lip. Four zones of decoration are visible on the body of the sherd: oblique lines oriented left to right, nested chevrons with the apex up and a border of punctates, oblique lines orientated right to left, and nested chevrons with the apex down and a border of punctates.

Date: 1200 CE-1400 CE
