Patina: Native American Copper Artifacts of the Western Great Lakes Region By Paul Schanen
PATINA! Lauric Press is proud to announce yet another terrific Native American Artifact book, a color, over-sized paperback textbook and-or ebook. Patina is defined as a green or brown film on the surface of bronze or similar metals, produced by oxidation over a long period.
Paul Schanen is back with his fascination with prehistoric peoples. He found his first projectile point at age 15, and that transformative experience has led to decades of his research and documentation of sites all over Wisconsin. As a student of Anthropology and Geography at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, Paul examined and preserved thousands of artifacts. Among this was an incredible range of Old Copper Culture pieces. Eventually, Paul went on to co-write a Wisconsin-specific Native American artifact guide: Native American Artifacts of Wisconsin. It’s brief chapter about Copper artifacts left Paul feeling as though there was still much more research to be done on the Patina subject. This eventually led to the creation of this more comprehensive book- Patina.” 335 pages of amazing full color artifacts. Put this "museum" on your bookshelf. Paperback or get the Amazon Kindle ebook.
