These clay beads were excavated during the 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the Tobias site in Rice County. Clay beads are made using a small clay bead blank with the hollow center either perforated prior to firing or drilled after firing. The Tobias site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral Wichita) village that has 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
