@alabamaarchaeologyartifacts Mulberry Creek projectile point that was recovered in a creek gravel bed in Limestone County, Alabama. This example has a base that was snapped off, whether that was done intentionally or a result of ancient usage... who knows! Timeline: 5,000-3,000 B.P. Middle to Late Archaic period. Key to typology: excurvate blade with the widest section of the blade being the midpoint, triangular stemmed form, shoulders are found to be asymmetrical often, stem edges ground, blade edges were finely retouched, and random flaking patterns consistent with the time frame. #alabamaarchaeologyartifacts #artifacts #archaeology#arrowheads#prehistoric #lithics #preservation#savinghistory
@dumbartonhouseDumbarton House, NSCDA Museum & Headquarters During World War II, Louisa Spruance Morse, @nscda member from Delaware, enlisted in the Civil Air Patrol as a private in 1942. She taught navigation, meteorology, and civil air regulations. Morse was appointed commander of the Delaware Wing of CAP in 1953, and later earned a spot on the Executive Committee in 1976. In 2003 Morse was inducted into the Delaware Aviation Hall of Fame for her service. . . Who are the women of The NSCDA? Throughout March we will highlight some of the women of The @nscda and share their stories of courage, compassion, and leadership.

@parulinaNew York, New York At Parulina, we pride ourselves in the belief that every being should be respected, loved, protected, and cared for. More specifically, we believe animals need a voice, and we use this passion to support brands and organizations, such as @theWCS, that help us maintain our values and integrity.... not just in our brand, but in ourselves, as well. Among other things, it’s why we donate 7% of all proceeds coming from sales of our “Hanging on Collection” to the Wildlife Conservation Society. *** As we posted last week, truly great victories happen all of the time. But as with all matters of passion, loss... sadness... and hope are never too far away. Yesterday, Sudan, the world’s last male white rhino, died at the age of 45 due to age-related complications. All hope now lay in the hands of scientists and the possibility of in vitro fertilization with one of the two remaining female members of this subspecies. ****** We hope you stand with us, both here and on smaller scales, such
