These fragments of a Great Bend Aspect vessel were excavated during the 1993 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Sharps Creek site in McPherson County. The site was a Great Bend aspect village occupied during the Late Ceramic period. The vessel fragments were reconstructed to reveal a large jar with a crenelated lip, a smooth body and a loop handle riveted to the body. Traces of burned cooking residue remain both inside and outside of the vessel.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
