I always love hearing about cool discoveries at the Goodwill. What makes this story better is that the local Goodwill did the right thing and donated it back to the Caddo Indian Nation. More on this fun story via the Buffalo News:
The piece of pottery that turned up last month in the warehouse of Goodwill Industries of Western New York might be described as “primitive.”
Roughly 7 1/2 inches tall, the vessel features a fluted opening and wartlike protrusions.
But it arrived with a note inside suggesting that its provenance may be prehistoric.
“Found in a burial mound near Spiro Oklahoma in 1970,” said the note written in pencil on a faded strip of lined paper.
