Archaeologist Janet Speth will be on hand to provide expert identification of Native American artifacts at the Weis Earth Science Museum on Saturday, August 11. The identification event is part of “Victorian Science Summer,” and will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley.
Museum director Joanne Kluessendorf remarked, “This area has such a rich Native American history. People frequently find Indian artifacts locally in farm fields and gardens. This is a great opportunity to have an expert identify these artifacts, many of which have become family heirlooms.”
The identification event is free with museum admission. Visitors will also be able to see the museum’s latest exhibit “Danger: Dinosaurs!” For information, visit www.weismuseum.org, or call 920.832.2925. The Weis Earth Science Museum is Wisconsin’s Official Mineralogical Museum.
