New archaeology sites in Montgomery County documented

 This is the second year that Ball State archaeologists have been exploring the fields of Montgomery County.  Come to the Carnegie Museum of Montgomery County on Wednesday,April 2 at 7:00 p.m. and learn some interesting archaeology facts about Montgomery County and the till plain region of Indiana.  The Applied Anthropology Laboratories, Department of Anthropology, Ball State University has recently completed two archaeological survey projects that have more than doubled the prehistoric and historic sites in the archaeological data base for Montgomery County.  The public presentation will review project goals and objectives of this year’s survey in the southern portion of the county, and compare and contrast the results to the 2010 survey in the northern portion of the county.  Archaeologists will have artifacts from the survey available to view and will show a video that highlights their field and lab 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.
