In 1969, Charles J. Bareis found an intact gorget made from a lightning whelk at Cahokia. Although images of it have been well circulated, its exact provenience has never been published, and this article pinpoints the location at Cahokia near Mound 17. I also discuss my attempts to replicate the process of shell fenestration.
