This rim sherd was recovered from the surface of a Late Archaic camp site in Elk County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1975. The sherd is decorated with two zones of dentate stamping above and below a zone of triangular punctates. Dentate stamping is a decorating technique that leaves tooth-like impressions. Dentate stamping is associated with Cuesta phase, Kansas City Hopewell, and Schultz phase pottery.

Date: 4000-2000 BCE
