Hot Springs Village Archaeological Site

Since we just got done looking at traditional Unangan beliefs I thought I would mention a website that features amulets from The Hot Springs Village archaeological site.   The site lets you rotate the pictures so you can view the amulets from all sides. If you're interested in carving your own, this is a great place to go for source material.
As the home page indicates, the source culture of the amulets is uncertain.  Apparently the place where they were found is right on the border of the Alutiiq and Unangan territories and so which culture made the amulets or whether more than one culture influence them is uncertain.  All the same, there they are, regardless of who made them.
