    Aboriginal Pottery of the Eastern United States

    You can download William Henry Holmes paper “Aboriginal Pottery of the Eastern United States” (pdf and other formats) here:

    It’s a hefty 39MB download running to 850 pages which represents the 20th Annual Report (1888/9) of the Bureau of American Ethnology to the Smithsonian by J. W. Powell. Holmes’ paper on pottery begins at page 233 and – although the picture resolution isn’t great - it’s still a mine of information.
    I keep six honest serving-men (they taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When and How and Where and Who.
