These pieces of silica, or remnants of burned grasses, were recovered from the Tobias site in Rice County during excavations as part of the 1977, 1978, and 2019 Kansas Archeology Training Program field schools. Silica like this is likely evidence of the grass lodges used by the people living at the Tobias site, who are ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

Date: 1400-1700 CE
