These ceramic pot sherds from 14DP1306 were donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The Collins site is a possible village site in Doniphan County, perhaps either occupied by people of the Upper Republican or Nebraska Aspect cultures. The sherds are sand tempered and decorated with crenellations below the lip. The body of the vessels are cord marked, a technique where a cord-wrapped paddle was used by the American Indians to make the roughened surface treatment.

Date: 1000 CE-1500 CE
