Shown are a few of the burned corn cob fragments that were recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. These cobs were recovered during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program. The cobs were identified as examples of both 10- and 16-rowed ears of corn. One cob still has burned kernels in place.

Date: 1650-1750 CE
