Thousand year old artifacts in Southern Illinois are nothing new.

Finding 1000 year old artifacts (in the past or in the present) in Southern Illinois is still a "wow" factor to me. Thanks Kayleen for sharing.

Thanks for sharing, even if it is "nothing new", it still is.

The Mississippian Period in the midwestern and southeastern United States lasted from about A.D. 800 to 1600. That explains why the binding on the stone ax still looks pretty good.

We just got back from camping in Iowa where we visited the national effigy mound site. Very cool.
