These two vessel fragments were recovered from the Sharps Creek site during the 1993 Kansas Archeological Training Program. The Sharps Creek site is a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County that was occupied during the Late Ceramic period. Both vessels are small jars with outflaring rims, strap handles and sand temper. One vessels handle is decorated with vertical parallel lines attached with a rivet at the base of the handle and molded to the lip at the top. The other vessel fragment is actually four sherds that were refitted together. This pot shows charred residue inside and out.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
