Come visit Campus Archaeology this weekend for ‘History Beneath Your Feet’ at the Michigan Historical Museum!

This month is Michigan Archaeology Month. In celebration of it, the Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing has been having a month of activities with talks and children’s activities. The three weekends so far have featured archaeologists working on Mackinac Island, underwater archaeology of Lake Huron, and the human remains found at Stone Street. Activities taking place each weekend have included spear throwing, stone tool making, and understanding the lifestyles of Michigan residents 1200 years ago.

The goal of this series is to promote archaeology and reveal the work that is ongoing today around the area. This upcoming weekend, MSU Campus Archaeology will be the featured talk. Dr. Lynne Goldstein is going to be discussing the field school excavations that occurred this past summer on campus and the role of Campus Archaeology at MSU. Not only is this a good opportunity to learn more about what work has been done on campus and what artifacts we recovered, but it is also a good time to visit the museum to learn more about archaeology in the broader area.

Dr. Goldstein will be speaking at the Michigan Historical Museum in Lansing on October 22 at 1pm. The museum is located on 702 W. Kalamazoo St in Lansing, or directions can be found here. The talk will be taking place in the Forum on the first floor.
