These ceramic sherds were excavated during the 1977 and 1978 Kansas Archeology Training Program field schools at the Tobias site in Rice County. The vessel rims on the top row are decorated with a series of fingernail impressions (left) and with applied vertical and horizontal nodes (right). The vessel body sherd on the bottom row is decorated with a series of deep tool-trailed lines. 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
