"Old Route 66 zoo" site announced in Missouri, dozens of suspected worked flint sculptures, site available for qualified archaeologists
Owl sculpture identified from the "Old Route 66 zoo." The potentially very old site is available for archaeological investigation.
The 5 acre area is privately owned and the landowner is eager to discuss the potential for scientific examination of the site with qualified archaeological investigators. Artifacts have been surface collected and a test pit indicates many more remain. Approximately 100 crude flint pieces having evidence of human agency as well as imagery have been identified so far. Archaeologists who are interested in what could be a very old archaeological site in the middle of North America may contact Mr. Dodd at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
The owl above is a very nice example of an animal which makes a recurring appearance in paleoart. Look for additional artifact photos from this exciting new Missouri site on this blog.
