This small turquoise bead was excavated from deep within a pit at the Larcom-Haggard site in Cowley County. The turquoise was likely from Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico or Colorado. The Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village was discovered in an old river meander with a modern gravel quarry greatly impacting the site. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated there in 1996 as the final stage of a salvage project.

Date: 1400-1750 CE
