These five glass beads were collected from a multicomponent site overlooking the Missouri River in Leavenworth County. The site, with occupations in the Middle Ceramic and Historic periods, may have once been a Kickapoo habitation site in addition to later habitations. The beads were widely traded until the 1850s. The four blue beads of various sizes are faceted. The green bead fragment is made of drawn glass and is round with flat ends.

Date: 1800-1900
