Turtle Head Effigy
I found this unusual item in a box of miscellaneous artifacts in our collection. I don’t know where it came from. I don’t think we found it but it is possible. It could be from the Hopewell Culture or could even be Myan. If anyone has any thoughts on it please let me know.
Spent Flake Core
This is all that is left and I have to say, he didn’t waste any. This was once large enough to produce long flake knives known as bladelets. It is hard to date because they were used throughout Native American history. Flake cores are fairly rare in that there was only one used to produce nearly a hundred bladelets.
Northwest Coast Ivory Needle
This needle was purchased at a relic show in the early 70’s. It was part of a group of artifacts from an abandon fishing village recovered in the 1940’s. The village was near Hooper Bay Alaska Latitude 61:30 Longitude 166. It appears to be old and authentic with nice patina.
Ornamental Bone Object
This is an unusual piece that was found in association with many Woodland artifacts. It has been cut and rounded on both ends. Possibly used as an ornamental decoration such as a nose or ear piercing. If anyone has more information, I would be happy to hear it.
