Here is part of a
collection of pots found in the museum.
Some other of the
remarkable arrowheads found in this interesting
collection are the Iron Stones, dated from
between 5,000 to 8,000 years ago.
There are also
notched bifurcate arrowheads created some 3,000
to 5,000 years ago and Quartzite arrowheads,
found in Greenwich that go back from 600 to
1,000 years ago.
Also found in the
display cases are pots, mostly found by the late
Howard Radcliffe who helped assemble the museum.
There are 57 pots
carefully reconstructed from shattered pieces by
Radcliffe, known in South Jersey as the
"Grandfather" of all local Indian artifact
items displayed in the museum are a collection
of axes dating back 1,000 years, gorgets that
Indian women used to tie their hair back,
cooking utensils, fishing bobs, pipes and bones
such as the skull of a dog found at the feet of
a skeleton in an Indian burial ground.
The museum was
created by the late George J. Woodruff with the
assistance of Mr. Radcliffe. The artifacts were
stored in Woodruff's home until the men created
the museum at the Bridgeton Library in the year
