DUCK RIVER CACHE
This picture shows the Duck River Cache as it appears on display at the Frank H. McClung museum at Knoxville, Tennessee. The cache was discovered in 1894 by an employee on a farm in western Tennessee. The cache contains 46 bifaces that were flaked into many different "exotic" forms that have been interpreted as "ceremonial objects." The cache was discovered on a farm owned by Mr. Banks Links. They were found on land that is described as "having been in cultivation for many years, wagon-loads of flat rocks used in building the graves have been carted off and the human remains scattered." It's interesting to note that there is no specific mention of any human remains found directly with the Duck River Cache. It's also reported that "Other "swords" and maces were found in caches during the 1936 archaeological explorations of the Link site mounds and habitations. One house-mound is reported to have yielded "four sword preforms."
