Event to focus on archeology
As part of the celebration of national Preservation Month, the public is invited to a presentation focusing on Floyd County’s archaeological resources, and the ongoing efforts to identify and protect these resources.
Christopher Moore and Rebecca Van Sessen of the University of Indianapolis will provide background on the science of archaeology and how it can be used to understand the past, as well as what is known about the prehistory of Floyd County and gaps in that knowledge. They will also discuss a planned archaeological survey of the county, and how the community can be involved with that effort.
The presentation will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14, in the Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library, 180 West Spring St. Call 812-944-8464 for more information.
