Cultural Modification of Bones, Antlers, and Teeth
Cultural modification of bones, antlers, and teeth by Paleo-Indians (the earliest Native Americans), and those Native Americans who followed, truly deserves a book unto itself. Dr. Bob’s presentation will give the amateur or beginning paleontologist and archaeologist a reasonable start in recognizing cultural modifications to bones, antlers (a specialized type of bone), and teeth. Any bones, antlers or teeth that show signs of work done by Native Americans can be considered culturally modified. Indians did this for a variety of reasons. Dr. Bob will explain the use of many culturally modified items. Don’t miss it.
