The Cicada Whistles

Record #:
The former Curator of Archaeology of the National Museum in Washington, Neil M. Judd, had to solve many mysteries in his position. One was the puzzle of the Cicada Whistles, which came from Missouri, Virginia, and North Carolina. These surface finds were identical in size and made colored clay in two-piece molds. It is still a mystery if they were made by prehistoric Indians or contemporary commercial groups.
