These rim sherds were recovered from the Fanning Site in Doniphan County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1971 and 1991. The rim sherds are tempered with shell. The larger sherd has decoration on the interior rim and both are decorated with opposed diagonal lines. The smaller sherd also has a punctate border on the body. This style is similar to ceramics from the Middle/Developmental Horizon (1200 - 1400 CE) of the Oneota during the Middle Ceramic period. The Fanning site was a Late Ceramic to early Contact Period Kansa village. It was described at the turn of the 19th- and 20th-century as having numerous "teepee sites" still visible.

Date: 1500-1700 CE
