This shell bead collected from the Wells village site in Barton County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2021. The shell is delicate and great care must have been taken to create the hole and shape the oval bead. The village site had an abundance of artifacts that reflect not only a Dismal River aspect occupation (1650 - 1750 CE) but also a historic component.

Date: 1650-1750 CE
