These three rim sherds were collected from the Wullscheleger site in Marshall County and donated in 1960 and 1961 to the Kansas Historical Society. All three of the out-curving rim sherds have sand temper. The sherds are from three separate vessels, have horizontal lines on their necks that are representative of three distinct techniques (from left to right): parallel tool trails, fine tool trails, faint or smoothed-over tool trails. The site was occupied periodically throughout the Early, Middle and Late Ceramic periods, though this pottery may be more typical of the Middle to Late Ceramic periods.

Date: 1-1800 CE
