These partially reconstructed pot sherds were recovered from excavations in 1934 by the University of Nebraska and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1987. The Majors Diagonal Incised jar was decorated with alternating zones of oblique lines. This type of pottery is found at Central Plains tradition sites of the Late Prehistoric period. It was recovered from different features in House 8 of the Minneapolis site in Ottawa County, a Smoky Hill phase site occupied during the Middle Ceramic Period.
