Miami Circle - Artifacts - Bone Artifacts

Bone Artifacts

Over 500 bone and tooth artifacts from the Miami Circle at Brickell Point have been studied and compared with artifacts from the nearby Granada site. Tools were made from the deer foot bones, shark teeth and bones from a few other species. Most of the bone tools from the Miami Circle are everyday tools associated with weaving, processing leather, wood carving, and bone working. Decorated bone artifacts from the Miami Circle are rare, but include one small, round pendant engraved circles. Similar pendants made of shell are known from other Florida sites.
