Oneota Vessel – La Crosse County

Oneota pottery This shell-tempered Oneota vessel portion was found in La Crosse County in 1991. The rim flares outward and has tool impressions on the lip top. The tool was held flat, and the impressions were made at an angle rather than being perpendicular, creating a series of diagonal dashes / / / along the lip. The shoulder has blocks of diagonal tool trails made at different angles.
