ST. CLAIR SIDE-
This St. Clair side-notched hoe is one of the best
examples that has ever been found. It was discovered
many years ago near the town of Grand Tower near the
Mississippi River at the southern tip of Illinois. It was
very skillfully flaked into its symmetrical shape using
percussion and pressure flaking. This Cahokia style St.
Clair side-notched hoe is made of a beautiful orange
colored Kaolin chert. It measures 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm)
long and 5 1/4 inches (13.3 cm) wide.
