This picture illustrates several different types of
artifacts that were found on Cahokia culture sites in
southern Illinois. The two spuds are very fine examples
that were made from chert and polished all over. There
are two Ramey knives in the center, a Kaolin chert
chisel at the upper left, a spade or adze at the upper
right and a perforated discoidal in the lower center.
Other items in the picture include fishhooks made
from deer bones, shell beads and double & triple-notched
Cahokia arrow points. The spud on the left measures
8 11/16 inches (22.1 cm) long.
