Oneota Vessel 13

October 31, 2019

Oneota Vessel 13This vessel was recovered during excavations in the early 2000s at the Sanford Archaeological District in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The vessel looks like a possible hybrid of Perrot Punctate and Brice Prairie Trailed v. zigzag motifs. This vessel has vertical tool trails that start at the top of the shoulder, and two rows of punctates forming zig-zags on the neck. It has a diameter of only 12 cm (2 3/4 inches) (53 percent of the rim was present) and a high neck (3.5 cm or 1 1/3 inches) for such a small diameter. This vessel was found in a feature which also produced a Perrot Punctate vessel and a Brice Prairie Trailed vessel. All three represent large portions of the vessels.
