This pottery vessel was recovered from the El Cuartelejo site in Scott County during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. The pot was reconstructed from many individual sherds, with the spaces filled in with plaster. Years later these fragments once again became detached, pulled apart by the plaster that was meant to support the vessel. The archeological site, 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
