Native American Artifacts of Wisconsin (Paperback)
Native American Artifacts of Wisconsin is designed to bridge the gap between the professional and amateur archaeologist. In an easy and logical format, it serves as an excellent reference on the prehistoric artifacts found specifically in Wisconsin. The guide provides time periods, detailed drawings, artifact photos, and documented discovery locations quickly and easily, without the reader having to wade through lengthy journal entries or detailed scholarly papers. In addition, Paul Schanen and David Hunzicker provide guidelines to collectors about the importance of documenting the circumstances and locations of their own artifact finds and how best to share this information with others in order to increase our collective knowledge about these priceless, prehistoric artifacts and the populations who created and used them. Only through careful unearthing, detailed documentation and collaborative sharing will we learn about the people(s) that lived thousands of years ago. No doubt much remains for us to discover about Native Americans from the daily tools they used as they farmed, hunted, lived, hoped, dreamed, and died among the very same forests, hills and streamsWisconsin residents call home today.
