These three pottery sherds were among the many recovered from excavations during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Programs 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. They represent three different vessels. One body sherd with a handle molded below the rim is decorated with three rows of punctates. The only rim sherd has fine vertical cord marking and two diagonal slash marks on the lip. This sherd also retains traces of burned residue. The red body sherd is an example of Geneseo Red Filmed ware.

Date: 1400 CE-1600
