This small fragment of pottery was recovered from the excavations during the 1977 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. During analysis it was noticed that the sherd has an unusual surface treatment. The sherd appears to have been brushed with a stiff fiber, possibly grass or a corn husk. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that had dense artifact deposits, house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1600 CE
