This ceramic handle was recovered during the 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. The handle was attached to a ceramic vessel that later broke. It is decorated with three horizontal rows of punctates separated by deeply incised lines. 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. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
