These body sherds were recovered during the 1969 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Vohs site in Osborne County. The cord-marked sherds have grit and sand temper, which was added to the clay to help form, dry, and fire the pottery. The site was discovered during land leveling operations. The Vohs site is a multicomponent site, meaning there was more than one occupation. The site was first occupied by people that left an archeological assemblage with characteristics of the Keith phase and later by people that left an archeological assemblage with characteristics of the Smoky Hill aspect. These names were assigned by researchers to a specific set of archeological characteristics and are not the names these groups would have called themselves.

Date: 500-1500 CE
