SRAC began excavating a local Native American site 2016 that is on the verge of being erased by the plow and impacted by modern land use. Lead by archaeologist Dan Caister and anthropologist Dr. Wymer, (both board members of SRAC) our excavations have revealed that the site is over 1000 years old and may be the remains of an ancient village – most importantly our research is yielding important information concerning the ancient people who once lived in our area. It is our hope to collect whatever data is still available before it is gone forever.
Would you like to join our excavation? SRAC will be holding a public archaeology day on Saturday, September 23rd with a morning and afternoon shift available.
Here’s how it works:
– The 2017 excavation was a great success! Stay tuned for opportunities for the public to take part in 2018!
Please note that the morning shift will be 9 am to 12:30 pm and afternoon shift will be 1pm to 4pm. You will need to state which shift you will be able to attend on the sign up form. There are a limited amount of openings, so you will be notified of your status once we have received the information we need.
Lastly please wear comfortable clothing with comfortable closed toe footwear. You will get an SRAC bag with water, etc so there is no need to bring your own water.
