Amateur, or avocational, archaeologists have made extraordinarily important contributions to our knowledge of prehistory. In order for them to do so, it is essential that they be able to identify the artifacts their discoveries and that, when they find sites that warrant intensive investigation, they report them to those who maintain state records and who can refer them to well-qualified professionals. This book should be very helpful for amateurs who truly care about archaeology and who wish to increase their knowledge and to contribute to the preservation and interpretation of remains of prehistoric cultures.

The finest North American Indian artifacts were made of organic materials, and luckily many survive. Materials used include the most common, bone, plus antler, shell, fur, ivory, and horn. Artifact classes range from projectile points and awls to fishhooks, gorgets, beads, and more. Collectors today value such pieces because of their artistic beauty and rarity. Most of them were destroyed by natural processes over the centuries, so those that remain are treasured. Lar Hothem, author of the bestselling five-volume series Indian Artifacts of the Midwest, has once again produced a fantastic book for Indian artifacts collectors. Each artifact includes information on type or class, material, size, find-location, and (in most cases) an estimated value. Background information is included about these artifacts, including finds made throughout North America. Advertisements from early dealers are listed, as well as recent auction results. This book opens the window to a fascinating world of study and collecting. 2006 values.
