This 12 point spur rowel, a revolving disk attached to the neck of the spur, was excavated at the 2019 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. 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 rowel likely post-dates this occupation.
