A Study of Late Archaic Lamoka Bone Objects
Presented by Marie-Lorraine Pipes PhD
Abstract: Five Late Archaic collections housed at the RMSC were examined for this study. Bone and antler objects are the most diversified artifact class found at Lamoka sites. It is often difficult to determine what they were used for, who owned them, or whether they were associated with particular genders. This talk will explain the goals of the study and discuss some of the difficulties in working with archival collections.
The Morgan chapter journal, The Iroquoian, began in 1981, as an opportunity for chapter members and others to share their love for archaeology and interest in the archaeology and history of the upstate New York area.
