Description

Prehistoric Native American, Paleo culture (11,000 - 13,000 years old); approx. 8 1/2"L, 1 3/4"W---We appreciate the assistance of Tommy Charles, Archaeologist, in evaluating this item. Mr. Charles retired in 2009 from the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of South Carolina, after thirty years of service. Early on during that time, he served as Collections Coordinator and conducted a statewide survey of Native American artifacts held in private collections, analyzing and recording more than 350 collections. Later, he transferred into the Research Division and conducted a search across the Piedmont of South Carolina for prehistoric Native American rock art followed by excavation of several Native American village sites in Spartanburg, Greenville and Pickens counties.
