These two rim sherds were found at the Trowbridge archeological site in Wyandotte County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1973. The sherds are decorated with rows of dentate stamping below prominent bosses. The interior of the largest sherd shows charred residue. This rim sherd was also glued by the donor prior to donation. The Trowbridge site is a Kansas City Hopewell site from the Early Ceramic Period. During this time archeologists find evidence of houses, cultivated plants, the bow and arrow, and decorated pottery.

Date: 1-250 CE
