Description

This enameled brass ornament is of European manufacture. It was found at an Early Historic period village site in Caroline County on the northern Coastal Plain. Copper ornaments had been valued in Virginia Indian exchange systems for centuries before colonists arrived. Metal ornaments were one of the trade goods that Europeans used to navigate relationships with native people in the early seventeenth century. (Photo enhanced)
