We started featuring Iowa artifacts on Facebook on a weekly basis nearly 4 years ago, and this was one of our first features! We then joined up with Tumblr and Instagram, and our following has boomed! Because this is one of Iowa’s most remarkable artifacts, it’s definitely worth of a second feature. This beautiful shell gorget was found at Hadfields Cave in northeastern Iowa. It’s thought to be the head of a deer and the body of a snake. It’s currently on exhibit at Iowa Hall in the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History - go check it out!
