Some of the artifacts recovered from the Fanning site, a protohistoric Kansa village site in Doniphan county, included charred corn and groundnuts. The groundnut tubers (Apios americana) have holes that were used for stringing so they might dry. Tuber fragments from archeological sites are very rare and these are excellent examples.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
