This glass trade bead was recovered from a Late Ceramic period archeological site in Barton County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2021. The hexagonal shaped bead was traded into the area from Europeans or other American Indian groups. Archeologists are interested in what even the smallest of artifacts can tell about how people interacted with other groups.

Date: 1500-1800 CE
