This southwestern pottery sherd was recovered from the Tobias site in Rice County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. There is a black band on the red painted body sherd. If it is indeed from the southwest it is likely from the Pueblo IV period (post 1300), a time of change and disturbance with high levels of trade for the peoples of the Southwest. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect village that had dense artifact deposits, house remains and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and affiliated tribes. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
