Gorget, sandal-sole   Save

Description: Gorget of marine shell is a sandal-sole type; the shape is similar to the sole of a shoe or sandal, although it is not flat but rather retains the curvature of the shell from which it was cut. Three unequally-spaced holes have been drilled along the long axis. The gorget is very pale brown and yellowish brown in color. Item was found at the Ridgeway Site in Hale Township, Hardin County, Ohio. View on Ohio Memory.
