These two gaming pieces were recovered from excavations during the 1977 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Tobias site in Rice County. The Tobias site is a Late Ceramic period proto Wichita village site that had dense artifact deposits (including chain mail), house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. These gaming pieces were likely made from broken ceramic vessels and ground into a circular shape.

Date: 1400 CE-1600
