Coral - Aiden

The artifact I received was coral, it is a whitish tan but in some places it’s brown. This coral is from a tropical place, most likely Hawaii, since it's the closest. This was most likely used in trading, or some other way of currency. However, it could have been a souvenir, or they used to live in there. Considering the shape it is in, it was dealt with nicely and kept in somewhere safe, where it wouldn’t break. This artifact was probably traded to Fort Vancouver from Hawaii, or another tropical place. It also would have been in a durable environment, because when the fort was burned down in 1866, it survived. We are changing the environment by cutting out the coral in the seas and ocean.
