These artifacts were recovered from the Jotham Meeker farmstead site in Franklin County. Tinklers were used to decorate hair, clothes and other objects. They were often made of brass salvaged from other items. The artifact on the left is a cone tinkler, but the one on the right may be an arrow point instead of a tinkler. The site was excavated in 1985 at a Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. Jotham Meeker served as a Baptist missionary among the Ottawa on their reservation.

Date: 1845-1865
