    we think ceremonial.......but.......
    it was also used as a porcupine quill processor tool......(the bill or beak)
    .............imagine 4 young girls sitting in a circle processing quills for inlay on clothing and moccasins......
    and showing these tools off to each other as to who would have the prettiest one....times have not changed in many ways

    Beautiful find Larson!
    This is a perfect example of why I always keep my 'eyes on the ground' when field walking!

    Absolutely stunning!!! Really amazing find !! Always wondered what the best soil conditions would be for preserving artifacts like that? Looks beautiful!! If it was in the ground, I'd love to know what the composition of the soil was like, as you were saying before, could be at least 350 yrs old!
    Anyway, congrats on a spectacular find!!! Thanks for sharing !!!!
