This paper describes a private collection of early Woodlands Indian artefacts which was acquired through eighteenth-and early nineteenth-century Scottish military connections with north-eastern North America. The unusual association of original documentation with the material enhances the importance of the collection, adding to our knowledge of the age, provenance and range of eighteenth-century Native American object types.
