History and Overview of worked faunal bone and ivory.   These holdings have various histories and we hope new stories to share.  They come from many locations around Florida including rivers and lakes as well as numerous terrestrial sites.  We started the galleries with one of the most unique worked animal bone items- Fishhooks.  Currently, we are measuring, imaging, identifying, researching, and data basing some of the more commonly found work bone –awls, fids, scrappers, knives, pins, pegs, musical instruments to mention a few tool types and implements.  Which bones and which taxa were selected by ancient artisans are among the many questions being asked as we continue developing the next gallery– stayed tune for updates!
