local indian archaeOlogy

Humboldt and Pocahontas counties are rich with Indian lore and artifacts. Russ has been hunting and collecting Indian artifacts since 1977.

The last battle in Iowa between two Indian tribes was fought just a few miles away near Bradgate. We give guided tours of the site along with a demonstration of flintnapping (arrowhead making). Hundreds of school children and adults have taken the tour which also includes a viewing of the Lawrence Ripperger artifact collection.
