Last week featured the “odds” and ends of American history. Iowan archaeologists discover prehistoric evidence of collapsed pottery from the Great Oasis Culture period. A Florida site preserved the handle of a 20th-century souvenir spoon. The spoon featured a pressed image of the Capitol Building on the wings of a soaring eagle. Meanwhile, in Alberta, Canada, a member of the First Nations saw visions of bison on a prehistoric biface. Other, less odd artifacts included a partial Hohokom bowl from Arizona and 28 recovered musket balls from the Natchez Revolt in Mississippi.
