Shown are eight of the 83 artifacts stored in a jar that was recovered during the Kansas Archeology Training Program excavation in 1996 at Fort Harker in Kanopolis, Kansas. The artifacts were discovered in a broken mustard jar, shown in the two slides, and may well represent a child's treasure, buried and forgotten sometime between the 1930s and the 1950s. Shown here is a brass tie tack, three cuprous decorative attachments with a seashell motif on the front and prongs on the back, a gold colored ring missing its setting, a pink wristwatch band fragment, a screw back earring with a purple glass stone and a heart-shaped filigree necklace pendant.

Date: 1930-1959
