These two rim sherds 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. The sherds represent two different styles of pottery. One has an upright rim and finger pinching decoration below the lip with thick walls and grit temper. The other has an out flaring rim with incised diagonal lines on the lip, thin walls and hematite inclusions within the clay.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
