Mississippian Technology Mural

Mural (painted by Karen Carr) on display in "The First Alabamians" museum exhibit at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH). While the mural itself is not a primary source, the artist incorporated a number of primary source artifacts housed at ADAH into the scene depicted. Mississippians made ornamental items, including beads, necklaces, and gorgets (pendants), out of shells. They also made fishhooks, hoes, and awls out of bones.
