Former State Archaeologist Dr. Rick Jones and local collectors Kenny Hochgesane and Derrick Haas will talk about archaeology and artifacts, followed by artifact identification.  The purpose of the panel is to learn about the Native Americans who lived in this area for more than 12,000 years from the artifacts they left behind. Local collectors will share their knowledge of the type of artifacts and the notable artifacts discovered in Dubois County. The archaeologists will interpret the artifacts based on the latest scientific knowledge of prehistoric Native Americans.

The goal of the panel discussion is to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of the earliest people who lived in this area. As the local collectors share their knowledge with archaeologists, the information will be added to the recorded history of the area.
 
This event is a part of Indiana Archaeology Month. During September, organizations around the state celebrate archaeology by hosting events where individuals can learn more about the archaeology field and the past. Learn more at https://www.in.gov/dnr/historic/3674.htm.
