13,000 Years in Adams County

13,000 Years in Adams County
Adams, WI:  Ever wondered who did the rock paintings at Roche-a-Cri State Park?  Is there an old mound on your property that really doesn’t look like it was made by nature?  Did your grandfather leave you a box of rocks that might be arrowheads? 
 
For answers to these and other questions, Adams County Library invites you to a discussion on Wisconsin archaeology with Dr. Connie Arzigian.  Dr. Arzigian will talk about the prehistory of the area, using authentic Wisconsin artifacts to demonstrate how Native American stone tools look and were manufactured.  She invites people to bring items from their personal collections for her to inspect. She may be able to provide information about their age and use.
 
Dr. Arzigian is an expert on Midwestern archaeology and paleoecology, examining subsistence and settlement systems, and the origins of agriculture.  She is a Senior Lecturer in the Archaeology and Anthropology Department at the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse, and a Research Archaeologist with the Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center at UW-L.  Dr. Arzigian is an active field archaeologist, running archaeological field schools every summer through the UW-La Crosse.
 
The talk will be Wednesday, October 16, 4 – 6 pm at the Community Center, room 145B.  Everyone is welcome.  If time permits, Dr. Arzigian will demonstrate flint knapping techniques. 
 
For further information, please contact Erin Foley at the Library, at 608-339-4250.
