These southwestern pottery sherds were excavated during the 1977 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. They are decorated with a black band on the red painted body sherd. If they are from the Southwest it is likely they are 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 (ancestral Wichita) village that had dense artifact deposits, house remains, numerous deep trash-filled storage pits, and evidence of trade with the southwest and elsewhere. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
