These 12 dish sherds were among the many collected from a multicomponent site overlooking the Missouri River in Leavenworth County. There are six rim sherds, one base sherd and five body sherds. A wide variety of patterns were recovered from the site including dish sherds decorated with hand painting, shell-edge, annular ware, transfer printing, called transferware, and by sponging with color, called spongeware. The site, with occupations in the Middle Ceramic and Historic periods, may have once been a Kickapoo habitation site in addition to later habitations.

Date: 1830-1930
