    Name and Description Nation Location
    King Philip's War Club
    Wampanoag US - Northeast
    In 1913 Dr. Warren King Moorehead learned that Mrs. Laura Daniels had in her possession King Philip's War Club. Apparently, she is descended from the Rev. John Checkley, a Church of England clergyman who became a missionary to the Indians in Providence. As the story goes, he secured the relic along with a pipe and a belt from the Indian (Alderman) who shot Philip in 1676. The club was handed down from person to person to Mrs. Laura Anne Daniels (maiden name Fuller) of Union, Maine. Miss Clara Endicott Sears purchased the club in 1930. It was stolen from the Fruitlands Museums in 1970. And, in the summer of 1995, it was returned to the museum.

    Wood Working
      US - Northeast
    Wood is naturally very susceptible to decay. Little wood remains from ancient sites, so much of the information given here is common sense, theory or taken from ethnographies. It seems that most of the wood that still exists in ancient archeological sites are found either in garbage pits or as the bottom remains of posts driven deep into the ground. Posts also left impressions in the soil after they decayed. Digging sticks were undoubtedly used, and impressions of bark as coverings for buildings and pits.
