Kory Cooper, associate professor at Purdue, they reveal a world of historical possibility. Cooper, who’s part of Purdue’s Department of Anthropology and School of Materials Engineering, recently examined the metallurgical characteristics of these objects, with funding from the National Science Foundation’s Division of Polar Programs Arctic Social Sciences.
