Please join the Three Rivers Archaeology Society and the Logan Museum of Art for a hands-on workshop on projectile point identification using the Logan Museum of Anthropology’s education collection. Professional archaeologists will help with identifications and show you how to identify prehistoric points and other stone tools. We will sort and identify the approximately 200 artifacts using guidebooks, comparative material, and local experts. No prior experience is necessary.
This exercise will help you become familiar with projectile point guidebooks and other resources you can use on your own. We will work in the Logan Museum’s basement laboratory, so plan on getting to the meeting by 7:00 p.m.
This event is free and open to the campus and community.
