This cone tinkler was excavated during the 1977 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. Tinklers were used to decorate hair, clothes and other objects. They were often made of brass salvaged from other items. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that had dense artifact deposits, house remains, and numerous deep trash-filled storage pits. The site is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
