Prehistoric Artifact: Native American Pottery Donated to Goodwill
Prehistoric artifact or interesting knick-knack? An anonymous donor dropped off a piece of pottery to Goodwill that some believe is, in fact, an artifact from a Native American tribe that once called Oklahoma their home. The pottery traveled through Goodwill’s internal distribution system — in one piece, no less — before showing up in New York.
How do people know this piece is actually a relic from long ago? Apparently someone found a note inside the pottery which read, “Found in a burial mound near Spiro Oklahoma in 1970″. It’s being speculated that it could be thousands of years old. How this thing survived being put through the organization’s system is anyone’s guess....
