These three ceramic marbles were recovered from the Thomas Johnson/Henry Williams Dugout site during the 2006 excavations by Washburn University and the 2007 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The collections from Washburn University were later donated to the Kansas Historical Society. This domestic site was related to the settlement of Nicodemus, Kansas, an all black community in western Kansas. All three marbles are the size called "Commies," or common.

Date: 1877 - 1910
