The Dubois County Museum has a change of plans for the scheduled Archeology Day on Saturday,
September 9, 2023.  Dr. Michael Strezewski, from University of Southern Indiana and Associate
Professor of Anthropology, will be filling in for Dr. Rick Jones. The museum received word
that Dr. Jones is under the weather.
The schedule for the day is still the same.
From 10:00 until 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, a panel discussion titled
“Archaeology in Dubois County”; will feature archaeologist, Dr Strezewski,
along with local collectors, Kenny Hochgesang and Derrick Haas.

The purpose of the panel is to learn about the Native Americans who lived
in this area for more than 12,000 years from the artifacts they left behind.
Local collectors will share their knowledge of the type of artifacts and
the notable artifacts discovered in Dubois County.  The archaeologists will
interpret the artifacts based on the latest scientific knowledge of prehistoric
Native Americans.
The goal of the panel discussion is to gain a greater understanding and
appreciation of the earliest people who lived in this area.  As the local
collectors share their knowledge with archaeologists, the information will be
added to the recorded history of the area.

From 11:00 a.m. until noon, Dr. Strezewski will
identify artifacts brought to the museum.  The public is invited to bring in
arrowheads and spear points.  Kenny Hochgesang and Derrick Haas will also be present to talk to the
public about Native American artifacts.

The museum will be open as usual on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.  The public is invited to visit
the museum’s Native American and Archaeology exhibits.
