This rim sherd was found at the Trowbridge archeological site (14WY1), in Wyandotte County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1973. The Trowbridge site is a Kansas City Hopewell site from the Early Ceramic Period. During this time archeologists find evidence of houses, cultivated plants, the bow and arrow, and decorated pottery. This rim sherd shows crosshatching above two rows of punctates. A single small boss appears in the crosshatching, most readily apparent by the indentation on the back of the sherd.

Date: 1 CE-250 CE
