Shown are two different small pottery jars recovered from the Sharps Creek site, a Great Bend aspect village site in McPherson County. They were recovered during excavations at the 1993 Kansas Archeology Training program. The miniature jar on the left has an indurated (hardened) clay as temper while the miniature jar on the right has grit temper. Both jars have outcurving rims and an abrupt transition at the shoulder/body area.
