Clarence B. Moore (1916)
Gustav's Library Vintage Reprints
The first excavations of Indian Knoll, near Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, were made by Clarence B. Moore in
the early 20th Century.  Some of the most interesting artifacts recovered from the graves were prismoidal
bannerstones and antler hooks.  Moore speculated that the bannerstones were used as net web spacers
and the antler artifacts as weaving hooks for net manufacture.  
Moore struggled to identify the purpose of the Bannerstones   " Judging that some use in common could be
found for the hooked implements and the objects of antler and of stone, it seemed to us at first that the
correct solution of the problem might be that respectively they were netting needles and objects used with
them for spacing the meshes of the nets, variously called sizers, spacers, mesh-measurers, mesh-gauges,
mesh-boards, mesh-blocks. The true significance of these finds was not recognized until some 20 years later
when the site was re-excavated and the Moore expedition data was re-analyzed by William S.Webb
