Notes

This Ball bannerstone appears to have been broken in half in the archaic period. It is finely carved and polished with several chips over its surface. The fluted area on one side may have served to hold a spear in place when the bannerstone was attached to an atlatl. There are signs of red pigment or rust over the surface from the historic period with 9532 written in white and 66/7.2 written on the inside of the perforation.

Date

6000-1000 BCE
