This bone fishhook was found several years ago in a cultivated field on the Cahokia Mounds Historic site. It was found in a cache of six or seven other fishhooks. This fishhook appears to be made from deer bone and possibly the toe bone of a deer. An estimated date for this fishhook is somewhere between A.D. 900 to A.D. 1300. Fishhooks have been found on Mississippi, Woodland and Archaic sites. Bone fishhooks 8,000 to 9,000 years old were found in Nebraska (Wormington, 1957: 138).
