My cousin and his friend were amateur archaeologists and anthropologists. They looked for and found all sorts of fossils and Indian artifacts; whenever they found anything, they would contact experts and donate their finds to local museums.

One time they found a horse skeleton in a river bank that still had the remnants of a saddle and a minie ball where the horse got shot during a battle, bolted, and laid down to die in a creek. They reconstructed the horse skeleton and made a lightweight mold of it's skull for display purposes with a wire framework to hold the saddle and bullet in place.
