Kansas Monument site (14RP1)
During the summer of 2007 a geophysical investigation of the Kansas Monument site (14RP1) was conducted by Archaeo-Physics, LLC for the Kansas State Historical Society. 14RP1 is a Pawnee village associated with the Kitkehahki band of Pawnee dating to the late 18th century, with a possible second occupation during the early 19th century. The village is located on the Republican River in north central Kansas USA. Portions of the village were never impacted by agricultural plowing, making this the only remaining Kitkehahki village containing intact archaeological resources (one other Pawnee village associated with the Skiri band in Nebraska also contains intact elements). The Kansas Monument site is owned by the State of Kansas, and is home to the Pawnee Indian Village Museum.
