My Favorite Archaeological Subject

“I have become very interested in the late Prehistoric American Indian cultures that occupied southwestern Ohio, and I am particularly interested in their bone tool sets. It’s amazing to see the varieties of bones that were used for similar tasks. For example, in the bone tool set from SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park, there are over 15 different kinds of animal bones that are fashioned into awls (ostensibly, tools made for poking holes into leather or other textiles). These range from turkey legs to deer or elk ulnae to simple splintered pieces of animal longbone. Archaeologists can become completely immersed in esoteric things!” For more information, please call 937-268-8199.
