Shown are three of the many ceramic pipe fragments that were recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The pipes have been incised, before the they were fired, with horizontal and vertical incised lines. Two of the pipes retain traces of dottle (tobacco residue) within the bowls. The site, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898. These pipe fragments were recovered during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program.

Date: 1650-1750 CE
