These pottery rims were recovered from the Bell village site in Comanche County. Each set of refit sherds has sand temper. The rim sherd on the left has a tab on the lip and below the rim a boss and opposed diagonal tool trailed lines. The Bell site is a Middle Ceramic period Wilmore complex site occupied by people who garden, fished, and hunted, primarily bison in south central Kansas and north central Oklahoma. The site was the focus of the 1984 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
