Chamoto Hill

Chamoto Hill is a large butte made of cryptocrystalline silica (flint/chert) north of the village of Igurusi. LSA (and possibly MSA) artifacts are numerous in all directions. Material is being mined by a porcelain factory. It was first identified as an archaeological site in the 1950s by E.G. Haldemann. We visited in 1990 and took artifact samples.
