This picture shows some of the rare examples of shell artifacts that were found on the Mitchell site. They were all made from freshwater clams. The most common ornament (jewelry) found on late Stone Age sites in North American are in the form of beads. The people who once lived on the Mitchell site produced tubular and flat disc shell beads. Several good examples can be seen in this picture. All have been perforated for suspension except for six flat disc beads that were not yet finished. Also pictured is a scraping tool that is made of a large piece of shell that is serrated on one end. The unfinished shell piece to the right of it appears to have been cut into a human-like figure which may have eventually been finished into a pendant.
