Leisure and Games
A variety of stone and pottery discs have been uncovered from Middle and Late Woodland sites. Small discs were likely "counters" or "tallies" in a variety of games. The larger discs have holes drilled through the center. They were used to play chunkey, a game that involves stone throwing for accuracy.
Childrens' toys have also been excavated from many sites. Most often, toys are miniature clay items that mimic the form of their larger counterparts. They include spoons, bowls, and pipes. Some still have fingerprint impressions from being formed when the clay was wet.
