Ohio and was excavated in 1915 under the direction of William C.

participated in this excavation and was responsible for the
restoration of many of the wonderful effigy and platform pipes that
were found there. Among the many finds during the excavation
were two caches. Cache #1 consisted of over 500 objects including:
136 tobacco pipes (effigy and platform), ear spools, woven fabrics,
crystals of galenite and mica, bone ornaments (some human) and
objects of flint, copper, wood and pipestone.
