This small burned corn cob was recovered from excavations during the 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program at the Tobias site in Rice County. The Tobias site is a Late Ceramic period proto Wichita village site that had dense artifact deposits (including chain mail), house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The burned cob is from a 10 row corn ear.
