5321 Macomb St.

The latest bungalow to be replaced by a mcmansion yielded a few prehistoric items.

Artifacts include:
bags of carbonized wood/bone, soapstone bowl fragment, rhyolite knife, pottery sherd, flakes, burin

This soapstone/steatite bowl fragment looks like it might have been ground after it’s useful life as a bowl.  The first phase of pottery in this area (Marcy Creek) has steatite tempered in the clay.   I found a similar bowl fragment on my property, alongside many sherds of the Marcy Creek pottery style.
