This rim sherd was excavated from a Great Bend aspect village in Cowley County in 1995. The sherd is decorated with a red film or slip and likely originated in the Red River region in Oklahoma or Texas. This vessel was probably made by the Caddo people who occupied northeast Texas and southeast Oklahoma and is evidence of long-distance trade between prehistoric people. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes. The site was impacted by a water line, golf greens, roads, and highways. Excavations had been occurring at the site since 1916.

Date: 1500-1725 CE
