These pottery rims were recovered from the Bell village site in Comanche County. All are sand tempered and decorated below the lip with fingernail or tool impressions. The Bell site is a Middle Ceramic period Wilmore complex site occupied by people who gardened, 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
