STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY MUSEUM COLLECTION
This triple exposure shows the best preserved example of the thirteen bone
artifacts found during excavation on the Wenatchee Clovis site. They were
all laying within a shallow pit.
This Bone artifact was expertly fashioned from a section of a
proboscidean limb bone. Both ends are tapered which suggests that they may
have been attached to something else. At the present time archaeologists
are still unsure of what these were used for.
Different theories put forth for their use are everything
from flintknapping tools to composite parts for sleds and spear foreshafts.
