Copper Artifact Master Database (CAMD)

Let me do a little brainstorming here. I want to try to come up with an Illinois article, a section of the Illinois Copper Artifact Resource Manual that I'm working on, that can be developed as an article that has something of interest for readers of the Illinois Archaeology Journal. There's so little copper found in Illinois that it's a bit of a challenge. I could talk about the separation of Oneota from Mississippian, because I'd like that clearer in my mind. I wish I could find my Cahokia presentation because that had some good stuff in it. I'll have to get out some of my CD disks to see what I have saved. The Cahokia site appears to have been more of a snake ritualistic site with snakes as the symbol of the rebirth of spring, when seeds come up out of the ground alike, as though the snake itself was responsible. But then why did the hawk symbolism become so popular in the SECC and why was the Serpent Mound built in Ohio? I do have a Snake V. Hawk article at Academia.edu, maybe I could develop that more specifically to Illinois. And then there's the trade route from Spiro to Etowah that appears to have made a stop along they way to Union County. Hopefully I'll come up with more ideas as I continue. Tomorrow I'll check out some more books at the library.

Working on IL CARM I came upon this Oconto Copper Burial Museum photo that I got online somewhere that had been misplaced. Thought I'd share it here, for what it's worth and how it relates to my most recently published book. I don't have permission use, so it's better placed here.
