This picture shows an example of one of the more exotic highly developed gorgets. Although found sometime in the 1980's in Rockcastle County, Kentucky the style seems to relate to Glacial Kame gorgets that have been found much farther to the north. It's described as a constricted center two hole gorget and it has lost one of its "bowtie" barbs. The area where the barb broke off was anciently finished with serrations or drill holes. Although larger gorgets have been found this example is one of the largest. It dates to the Late Archaic period. This gorget is made of cannel coal and measures approximately 11 inches (28 cm) long.
