Prehistoric Puzzlethon: Refitting Ceramics, Noblesville
Start Date: 9/29/2018Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 9/29/2018End Time: 4:00 PM
Event Description:
Strawtown Koteewi Park
Taylor Center of Natural History
12308 Strawtown Ave., Noblesville, IN 

Archaeologists often find pieces of broken pottery, but rarely find complete pots. Refitting the pieces back together, like a 3-D puzzle, can reveal new information about the form, function, and size of the vessel. For what purpose did people use pottery? Cooking? Serving? Storage? Other functions? Is the pottery the same in all parts of a village site? How are pottery differences interpreted? Join archaeologist Cheryl Munson in this fascinating hands-on workshop, as we put the pieces back together and learn how we can gather new data about past cultures.

This Event is a part of Archaeology Month.  During the month of September, the DHPA and other organizations celebrate and highlight archaeology throughout the state.  To learn more about Archaeology Month,
