   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.

Artifacts from the Cahokia culture, southern Illinois.
