White Fort Site (33Ln2)
Lorain County, OH
Before reconstruction, this pot was found in pieces at the White Fort site, a settlement of prehistoric Ohioans that belonging to the broad “Sandusky Tradition” culture. Certain characteristics distinguish this pot among other finds. The pot, although fragmented, was found almost in its entirety and also in one spot - a rarity. Beneath the pot were two, distinct layers of elk bone fragments and freshwater mussel shells. All this was found in a single, filled-in trench at White Fort.
Considering the special conditions of this find, the pot may have been deposited with ritual significance. Although we cannot know the exact circumstances, it is difficult to form any other explanation for the extra effort that was taken to deposit this vessel. Perhaps its users “retired” the vessel with extra care since it was quite large and decorative.
Note the patterns on the rim and body, indicating the use of two different stamps.
