This rim sherd from a large Oneota jar was donated to the Kansas Historical Society. The vessel fragment was collected from the Leary site, a large Oneota village that likely was periodically occupied by other groups. The site straddles the state line between Kansas and Nebraska, with a large portion on the Richardson County, Nebraska side and a smaller portion on the Brown County, Kansas side. The site was primarily occupied during the Late Prehistoric Period, with a few radiocarbon dates suggesting 1194 to 1477. The sherd is shell tempered and shows a series of oblique tool impressions on the lip. Below the lip are zones of diagonals lines interspaced by nested chevrons, orientated down, and embellished with a punctate.

Date: 1194-1477 CE
