While sorting artifacts recovered from excavations at 14EL313 in Ellis county, a volunteer in the Archeology Lab discovered this uniquely decorated stone. Perhaps once a ornament, the artifact now shows seven incised horizontal lines on one side and vertical straitions on the reverse. 14EL313 was excavated at the 2015 Kansas Archeology Training Program. It is part of the Keith Phase occupation in western Kansas which dates between 500 and 1100 CE.

Date: 1000 CE-1100 CE
