This bridle and headstall were recovered from excavations in 2012 at Fool Chief's Village, a large Kansa village site in Shawnee County. The headstall is a decorative piece that has been altered with drilled holes. Both artifacts were recovered from a midden (a refuse heap) area at the site. They were both cleaned by electrolysis which uses chemicals and electrical current through a liquid solution to separate the rust from the artifact.

Date: 1830-1844
