These two reconstructed pot sherds were recovered from House 1 at the Minneapolis site in Ottawa County in 1934 by the University of Nebraska. They and others from the collection were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1987. The Minneapolis site is a Smoky Hill phase occupation during the Middle Ceramic Period. In addition to cord marking, the sherds retain evidence of fire clouding, the blackened area that indicates uneven firing temperatures.

Date: 1232 CE-1409 CE
