Artifacts excavated from the Karr's Camp Mound (Wood 1967: Figure 22). The most common class of artifacts in the mound were Scallorn arrowpoints (a - l). Seven complete or fragmentary Rice Side Notched dart points (m - q) were recovered from the mound. The mound fill included a single conch shell disk bead (r) and 12 Anculosa snail beads (s - t). A cut wolf canine (x) was modified in precisely the same manner as the cut wolf maxilla from the Wray-Martin Mound 1 (Wood 1967:49 - 51).
