MARLIN BRANDO
owns thousands of indian artifacts from Kingston. Arthur Vantangoli, a one time selectman, harbor-master, and amateur archeologist was an avid collector of Native American baskets, arrow heads, and other artifacts. I recall Friday night poker games in the basement of his home were a bit like playing cards in a museum. His collection consisted of thousands of items and its fame spread far and wide. One day it came to the attention of Hollywood screen icon, Marlin Brando. Brando made Arthur an offer he couldn’t refuse and Arthur sold his collection — lock, stock, and basket.

plimoth plantation artifacts
 
i googled his name again to post here. almost 100% of the artifacts at the Plimoth Plantation my grandfather had dug up himself and given to them....

James Deetz, Memorial article by Marley Brown, III, 2004

Jim was taken to the site by a local amateur archaeologist, Arthur Vantangoli, who would become one of the plantation's most valuable archaeological diggers.
