Walking the tables at the Collinsville show I came across an interesting Banner Stone that apparantley had been recovered at the Cahokia site in St. Clair County, Illinois. I enquired on the Banner and was told that this was an Ex: Ben Thompson and Lee Holmes collection and had Bens collector sticker still on one side. What caught my eye with this piece was the fact that it has a freeze pop to one side where the numerous cycles of freezing over the years had caused a thin section of the banner to weather away. I BUY THE BANNER :) Back to Ben Thompson, I knew I would be seeing Ben at the yearly Central States Archaeological meeting that same night and figured I'd see if he remembered owning this great Cahokia Banner Stone??
