The Sam Morris Archeological Collection
The Sam Morris Archeological collection from Sweet Grass Country is important because it:
was collected by one person from one area and not mixed with other collections:
It represents all time periods and archeological cultures (12,000 years) that are known in this area:
Represents a complete cross-section of the various tool and material types that were used by pre-historic people in this area:
Compares well with other collections and excavated site materials from the local and regional area.
