This body sherd and two rim sherds were recovered from a Keith phase Early Ceramic period archeological site in Pawnee County. Crushed limestone that includes crystals of calcite was added to the clay when the pot was made to give it greater strength. The rough surface is made by rolling a cord-wrapped dowel over the surface of the pots with the clay is drying. Brush marks, made during pottery manufacture, are visible on the interior of the body sherd.
