Re: [ancient_waterways_society] Kassly-Schaefer Tablet
- I am writing to share a video showing the fit-up of two matching pieces of the Kassly Schaefer Tablet.It is called "Another Piece of the Puzzle" and this video shows Bill Iseminger with Liz Kassly. Liz fits up a side of the Sandstone tablet found in Old Valmeyer, Illinois.The site of discovery is now a farmers field, and is situated at the confluence of the Meramec and Mississippi River.Liz Kassly showed me the exact site that she found the tablet.A few years ago, after a rainstorm, I found the only "Cahokia Point" that I have ever found nearly two feet from the Kassly Tablet. The cahokia point was made from Chert that was at the interface of a black and white piece. It was made so one half of the point was white and the other half was black chert.More to discuss later.Vince

Date: Saturday, July 25, 2009, 9:39 PMUpdate on the Kassly-Schaefer Tablet;
Liz Kassly found another fragment of the figural carved broken sandstone tablet that was plowed up in Valmeyer, IL.
Kassly has put together a short film of fitting the broken piece with the larger part of the tablet.
Today, Liz sent this update:
"My girl is going to put our little film of me fitting another piece on the birdman tablet on u-tube...hopefully by next week...i'll let ya know"
I will keep AWS updated on the u-tube link.
