These four ceramic sherds were excavated during the 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. The upper left body sherd is decorated with a series of fingernail impressions. The upper right rim sherd has four horizontal tool trailed lines below diagonal incised lines on the lip. The lower left rim sherd (two rim sherds reconstructed) has a row of horizontal finger pinching below the lip. The lower right rim sherd has a cord-marked surface treatment with two vertical nodes applied to the rim. 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
