November 29, 2018

Excavating bison scapula hoesShown in photo center, two overlapping bison scapula hoes found at the bottom of Feature 45 at the Meier Farm Site (47LC432), La Crosse County, Wisconsin. These specimens showed signs of use, but were far form exhausted and were probably cached for future use and never recovered. This salvage excavation was undertaken in 2002 under the direction of Jim Theler.
