These pottery sherds were recovered from the El Quartelejo site in Scott County during the 1976 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. They resemble pottery from Pueblo sites in the southwest and may have arrived as whole vessels, either brought or traded into El Cuartelejo. The 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 Quartelejo, also called the Scott County Pueblo, has been excavated and studied by many archeologists since 1898.

Date: 1650-1750 CE
