Tobias-Thompson Complex sites in Rice County, Kansas. Eight sites showcase
the Little River Focus of the Great Bend Aspect dating from 1500-1700 AD.

archaeological resources across this Nation. The workshop will present
lectures on the theory of operation, methodology, processing, and
interpretation with on-hands use of the equipment in the field. There is a
