Abstract

A richly furnished child burial of late Old Copper affiliation in Northern Minnesota is described. The mortuary offerings include a pair of large, decorated bone harpoons, and a pair of diagnostic Old Copper projectile points attached to dart shafts. The primary burial is flexed in a shallow pit with evidence of red ochre. Typological comparisons suggest a tentative date of 1,000 to 750 B.C.
