As an archaeologist i would be psyched if you called it a mortar cup instead. The "Indian girl grinding hole" thing turns out to be offensive in several different ways that have already been noted. Mortar cup is not derogatory to anyone and is easier in the long run. Sorry if that came off as angry or mean. I in no way intended that. Anyway, that's a great picture. I wonder what the rest of the site looked like.

Quit being such PC sallys. Like the indians that made this hole give a shit if you call them indians or "native americans". Puhlease. Jul 19, 2012
