The article offers background information on the Anker site in Illinois and on the four examples of marine shell mask/maskette gorgets recovered at the site. According to the author, the site is known for its burial mounds that were associated with exotic artifacts, such as marine shell items and lithic material. A 1997 article stated that one of the shell masks was small enough to be called a maskette, although the burial where it was interred could not be determined.
