Potato Creek SP hosts Archaeology Month speaker
Potato Creek State Park will host a "Chat with an Archaeologist" on Sept. 15 as part of the state's Archaeology Month.
The event runs from 2-5 p.m. at the nature center and starts with a presentation from archaeologist Bill Mangold on the pre-history of northern Indiana. Mangold will then host an informal session, showing the audience artifacts from the area and answering questions about artifacts. People with arrowheads or other artifacts are encouraged to bring them.
The event is free; however, the regular entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle applies.
Archaeology Month is an opportunity to celebrate and learn about Indiana archaeology. Various events for all ages are held every September by universities, museums, organizations and individuals throughout Indiana. The Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology coordinates Archaeology Month.
