The sherds from this vessel were excavated in 1965 at the Lewis site, a Pratt Complex Middle Ceramic period village in Pawnee County. Later the sherds were reconstructed by archeologists who used plaster to fill in missing pieces. However, much of the jar remained and enabled archeologists to see that the vessel was cord marked on the body and had a row of punctates immediately below the out-flaring lip. In addition to the Pratt Complex occupation, the Pratt site Smoky Hill aspect component (Middle Ceramic period) and a Great Bend aspect component (Late Ceramic period).

Date: 1100-1700 CE
