Shown are examples of pottery sherds from four different vessels. They were recovered from excavations during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Programs at the Tobias site in Rice County. The Tobias site is a Late Ceramic period proto Wichita village site that had dense artifact deposits (including chain mail), house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The dark sherd has burned residue present on the outside of the sherd. While all of the sherds have a smooth surface treatment, all differ in their decorative motifs.

Date: 1400 CE-1600
