Yes, it's true many northern tribes figured out how to hammer copper ore into tools. That's a good looking piece, BTW. One imagines the Picts producing their copper weapons in such a way. On the other hand, there has probably been a lot more coastal trade and immigration over the years than is commonly supposed.

So I'm still excavating a Swift Creek/Weeden Island village and mound site near Panama City. Yesterday this figurine/adorno head popped up in a feature near a shell midden. It's very unusual to find one of these, especially outside of a funerary context. I thought I'd share it with you guys.

Interesting. No mention of whether they were in contact with the Incan civilization.

Apologies for the crude shorthand. If I had a trowel I would give it up. I still use the term "Romans" when I mean SPQR.
I had searched for connections between the ancient mesoamerican civilizations and those of South America. Tell me what you know of this connection.
