This pottery from large Oneota jars was collected from the Leary site and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1925. The Leary site, a large Oneota village that likely was periodically occupied by other groups straddles the state line between Brown County, Kansas, and Richardson County, Nebraska. The site was primarily occupied during the Late Prehistoric Period, with a few radiocarbon dates suggesting 1194 to 1477. The sherds are shell tempered and show a series or zones of tool trails of varying depths below the lip. One rim sherd has punctates on the lip.

Date: 1194-1477 CE
