  • Adena rounded poll celt

    This style Celt was utilized by the Adena Culture, (500 B.C.-200A.D.), for the use of girdling trees, and cutting small saplings. Adena Rounded Poll Celts can be identified by their triangular shape, and rounded, or oval ends. These are most commonly found in Ohio, as well as Kentucky, with few being found in Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Fine hard stone was used in the production of these Celts. The one seen below is made of some kind of granite.
