Annual Special Event
PROBABLE EVENT - DETAILS TBA
St. Anselm’s Hall, Kampsville, IL
Saturday, July 14, 2018
10 am - 4 pm
For over 10,000 years humans have
continuously called the Illinois River Valley home. With the fertile
land and diverse resources there was no reason to migrate elsewhere.
The Center for American Archeology works to preserve this heritage,
train future archeologists and educate the public.
Archeology Day is a full day of archaeological site tours, excavation
demonstrations, informative displays, and lectures on the cultural occupation of
Native Americans in the Illinois River Valley. Hands-on pre-historic
technologies that include pottery making, basket weaving, and making dream
catchers make this a fun and educational event for all ages and interest levels.
Register at St. Anselm's Church Hall. Activities continue until 4 pm but you must depart for tours of the Koster site by no later
than 2 pm.
This event is in part supported by a grant from
the Illinois Humanities Council, the Illinois General Assembly, and the
National Endowment for the Humanities.
