These pottery sherds were recovered from an archeological site in Rice County during the 1981 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. They resemble pottery from Pueblo sites in the southwest and may have arrived as whole vessels, either brought or traded into area. The site was a small Great Bend aspect, Little River focus grass-covered pit house that included an entryway, storage pits, post molds and a hearth. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Date: 1450-1500 CE
