These pottery fragments were recovered during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school at the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County. The mineral mica was added to the clay when this pottery was made and is what makes the sherds glitter. El Cuartelejo, unique in Kansas, is the location of a seven room pueblo occupied by refugees from the Taos and Picuris pueblos in New Mexico in addition to Dismal River aspect groups (Apache). El Cuartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898.

Date: 1650-1750 CE
