THE MERRIAM COLLECTION

About Page

I have set up this website to sell the books, artifacts, flintknapping art, and other items from the collection my father and I built over the last 40 years.

More about my father, Larry Merriam

My name is Chris, I have been active in the artifact community for 40 years, and I have been selling relics over the internet for 20 years as TheRelicMan. I found my first arrowhead when I was 7, on a trip to Ohio, my father and I went hunting for the first time with my Uncle. Out in the tall corn, I found my first artifact, and I have been hooked ever since.

25 years later, while visiting with our good friend Dr Robert Bell, he pulled out an old box full of photographs he took while in his early 20's. They were pictures he took while visiting the Spiro Mound, in Eastern Oklahoma, back in 1934.

These were some of the only photographs taken during the Pocolo Miner's time at the site.

4 years and 400 pages later, my father and I completed the book.

The Spiro Mound: A Photo Essay.
