Incised Tooth - Trevor

This artifact, found at Fort Vancouver, is a beaver tooth with carvings on both sides. It is curved into a half circle about 1 ¾” in diameter, it has a chevron design incised on one side, and miscellaneous carvings on the other. It was most likely used as either a game piece or a personal piece of art. It could have been highly valued object to it’s owner, because the owner probably would have worn it on him at all times using the hole in one end to string it, and over time it would built up meaning in his life.  This artifact an example of the archaeological themes: Art, because of the intricate carvings all over it, and monetary systems, because it was possibly used as a gaming piece in games that involved gambling.
