This pipestone pipe bowl fragment was excavated during the 2019 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. The soft, fine-grained composition of the pipestone enabled the carver to shape and smooth the pipe. A horizontal line was incised below the lip of the bowl and other incised lines and scratches are present on the body of the bowl. 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
