This ceramic rim sherd was excavated in 1968 by Kansas Historical Society archeologists at the Paint Creek village in McPherson County. The high rim sherd has, as decoration, remnants of four embossed vertical lines and has sand temper. The Paint Creek site is part of the Little River focus of the Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita), whose people practiced fishing, hunting, gathering, and agriculture.
