A piece of
pottery given to Goodwill by an anonymous donor may in fact be a prehistoric
taken from a Native American burial site in Oklahoma.
It's thought that the piece may have come from the
Spiro Mounds archaeological site
in Oklahoma. Spiro Mounds was a permanent settlement from 800 - 1450, but the
area had been inhabited for 8,000 years.
"Once we were alerted to what it was, there was no doubt that we were happy to donate it back to them," Juhasz said.
