The rim sherd from a small, shell tempered pot was recovered from the Leary site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society. The Leary site was a large Oneota village that likely was periodically occupied by other groups. The site straddles the state line between Kansas and Nebraska, with a large portion on the Richardson County, Nebraska side and a smaller portion on the Brown County, Kansas side. The site was primarily occupied during the Late Prehistoric Period, with a few radiocarbon dates suggesting 1194 to 1477. The sherd shows a series of diagonal punctates on the lip. Below the lip are zones of nested chevrons alternating their orientation up and down and embellished with additional punctates.

Date: 1194 CE-1477 CE
