Carved Stone Axe Head
With handwritten label ‘Henry County. Illinois’
Size: 19 cm long – 7½ ins long
In 1884 an archaeologist John Rogan discovered sophisticated artefacts in copper, marine shell and stone at the Cahokia site. These were of such artistic refinement they were unprecedented in the archaeology of the Eastern woodlands. This fine carved stone axe was most probably a ritual object from an elite burial.
