Robert Buchanan grew up in Crete, Illinois and still resides in what
was once his grandparentís house. He found his first arrowhead on
the baseball diamond while attending school at Crete Elementary.
From then on he always watched the ground wherever he went whether it was
to visit neighbors, relatives or friends, or out hunting squirrels and
Over the years he acquired quite a few artifacts ranging from Paleo
unifaces to Madison points. Mr. Buchanan decided about three years
ago to pass his collection on to someone he knew would care about the artifacts
and the stories they can tell, and now we would both like to share them
Robert Buchanan is my uncle and he is the man responsible for teaching
me how to find a site and instilling in me interest in Native American
history and their artifacts and I would like to thank him for that, and
for now being the proud caretaker of his collection.
Thanks Uncle Robert.......
to date it has been the only way for me to acquire any axes, celts
or pestles.......I havenít found any...yet..............
Iím still looking.
