Native American Oddities and Eccentrics
The artifacts on this page are not the everyday common items we find as collectors such as arrowheads, axes, celts, etc. They are relics that have specific uses other then the normal relics we commonly find. Some examples of these types of artifacts display use and wear that is hard to explain, (even by professional archaeologists). I find these items interesting and collect them whenever I can. Some of the items we are showing here are not necessarily rare, but they are very uncommon.
This beautiful Stone Bowl is made of a killer Quartz material.
This head was broken from a bowl and recovered in a plowed field.
I picked this up with a small collection out of Southeast Missouri. It was so nice I had to keep it.
These beads were recovered in Central Illinois.
I found this in Lincoln Co Missouri, January 31, 2018.
This Game Ball was found in South East Missouri.
This Etley Eccentric came from West Central Missouri and is obviously broken. I believe this was an effigy type and would have had two more "legs".
This Pestle was found in St Clair Co Illinois. It is Woodland in Age.
This Antler Knife Handle was a personal find in Lincoln Co Missouri.
This was broken off a Woodland pottery bowl and found in a plowed field.
This Owl Tablet was found in Mississippi on an island by a personal friend of ours.
These Game Balls were found in St Clair Co Ilinois.
This Bone Awl came from Alabama and shows excellent polish!
