These pottery fragments were recovered during a survey of the Kermit Hayes No. 2 archeological site in Rice County that was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 2020. Two of the sherds are decorated with a light slip or film on both sides. The sherd on the right may have faint traces of cord marking and has been repurposed as a gaming piece after breaking. All of the pottery has sand temper. The Kermit Hayes No. 2 site is a Great Bend aspect (ancestral to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes) village with features labeled as a council circle, four large oblong houses surrounding a central space.

Date: 1450-1700 CE
