Kansas County Abbreviations for Archeological Trinomials

Archeologists in Kansas use the Smithsonian Institution's system to label sites. Site numbers consist of a number to indicate the state, a two letter code for the county, and finally a unique number for each site within the county. The Smithsonian system assigned the number 14 to indicate Kansas (which was alphabetically the 14th state prior to the admission of Alaska and Hawaii). The Smithsonian county codes are listed below. These county codes often do not coincide with the county abbreviations used on state license plates.
