Join Jeff Zemrock, of the Ohio Archaeological Society, in a series of free Ohio Archaeology workshops and discussions. Each workshop will focus on a different theme that will help prepare participants to better locate and identify Native American artifacts in Ohio. This series is structured as four different workshops, each with a different theme, that will provide an introduction to archaeology in Ohio. Attendees are encouraged to attend all four, but are welcome to pick and choose according to the themes they are most interested in.
Workshops are held at the Cleo Redd Fisher Museum at 203 East Main Street in Loudonville, Ohio. The classroom is accessible from rear entrance of museum. All workshops are free and open to the public. Each workshop begins at 7 PM and will last until approximately 8:30 PM.
