2019 Archaeology Month Poster

2019 Archaeology Month Poster


This year’s poster highlights Evansville and the fact that it is a persistent place. The Angel Mounds site (12Vg1) was a thriving Native American community a thousand years ago. Today, the Evansville area, including Angel Mounds, continues to be an important locale in southwestern Indiana. Long-term occupation of a place is based upon a number of factors and leads to lasting imprints on the landscape.

Shown on the poster are early Sanborn maps of the city, aerial photos of downtown Evansville and Angel mounds, an example of Angel pottery, and some historic artifacts from a site in Evansville.

To obtain a poster, you may either visit the DHPA (at 402 W. Washington Street, Room W274, Indianapolis), pick up a poster at an Indiana Archaeology Month event where the DHPA archaeology staff will be participating, or contact the office at 317-232-6982 for individual posters.
