Missy Baire from the Buffalo National River sits down to answer our 15 questions.
These three artifacts were carved from #animal bones to form a vial, a tube, and a finial, respectively. The artifacts were excavated during a project at 419 Rue Decatur in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. The #house had been purchased by the National Park Service to serve as the headquarters and visitor center for the park. Some of the buildings on the property had been damaged by termites and required extensive reconstruction. During the restoration process, extensive archeological remains related to previous buildings and occupations were discovered. Artifacts like these help reveal the locations of buildings and trash pits, how the #residents lived their lives, and what standard of living they enjoyed. In addition to these #bone artifacts, archeologists also recovered a dozen bone buttons.
