These body sherds were recovered from the surface of a multicomponent (multiple occupations) site in Elk County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1972 and 1975. Six of the sherds were repaired by the donor. The sherds show a variety of decoration styles: dentate stamping, zoned dentate stamping, punctates, tool impressed, and bosses. Dentate stamping is a decorating technique that leaves tooth-like impressions. Dentate stamping is associated with Cuesta phase, Kansas City Hopewell, and Schultz phase pottery. The single small boss is most readily apparent by the indentation on the back of the sherd.
