This small turquoise bead was excavated from deep within a pit at the Larcom-Haggard site in Cowley County. The Great Bend aspect village site was discovered in an old river meander with a modern gravel quarry greatly impacting the site. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated there in 1996 as the final stage of a salvage project. The turquoise was likely from Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico or Colorado.

Date: 1400 CE-1750
