Artifact Report, Fishing Lure Vessel (Accession # AL83.31) N.D. Final
Part of the Fishing Lure Vessel (Accession # AL83.31) N.D. Final project
Author(s): Anna Green
The provenience of the Fishing Lure Vessel, also referred to as the “Fishing Lure Pot,” is unknown. However, it is known to have been taken from an area near site 9SW1 by a fisherman who claimed that it was caught on his fishing lure. When the fisherman brought the vessel to Frank Schnell and the Columbus Museum of Arts and Sciences, Schnell concluded that it had been “removed from a burial at the Rood site or a site from this same cultural period within Lake Walter F. George Property” (Huddleston 1998). Because of its indefinite origins, it was decided that this vessel should be its own investigation. As Schnell believed the Fishing Lure Vessel to have been removed from a burial, it was treated as NAGPRA-related material. This investigation was named “Fishing Lure Vessel (Accession #: AL83.31) N.D. Final” because the vessel was commonly referred to as the “Fishing Lure Vessel.”
