New archaeology sites in Henry County documented

      As part of a Historic Preservation Fund grant, archaeologists from the Applied Anthropology Laboratories, Ball State University, explored the Summit Lake State Park and Wilbur Wright Fish and Wildlife Area in Henry County this past summer.  Participate in our online WebEx presentation on Thursday April 30 at 11:00 am to learn about the results of these projects.

      The public presentation will review project goals, objectives, and results of this year’s surveys and will concentrate on what the artifacts tell us about the human occupation of Henry County during different time periods.  Archaeologists will have artifacts from the surveys available to view and will show pictures that highlight their field and laboratory methods.

      This project was funded in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Fund administered by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology.

      The link for the WebEx presentation can be accessed here and use ArchaeologyRocks for the password. There will be opportunities after the presentation to ask questions and discuss with the presenters. The presentation will be recorded and will be available for public viewing after April 30.  For more information, please contact Christine Thompson, Archaeologist, Applied Anthropology Laboratories, Ball State University at (765) 285-5328 or
