Beamer
Description: This animal long bone has been hollowed out to be used as a knapping tool. The distal end is rounded, and the proximal end appears to have been cut. The bone is very pale brown and dark grayish brown in color. This piece comes from the Late Prehistoric Period. Several distinctive Late Prehistoric cultures are recognized in different parts of Ohio: Fort Ancient in southern and central Ohio; Sandusky in northwestern Ohio; Whittlesey in northeastern Ohio; and Monongehela in eastern Ohio. These Late Prehistoric groups fished, farmed, and collected wild plant foods throughout Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
