Interested in Ohio’s prehistoric past? Be sure to attend the fourth annual Archaeology Day, hosted by the Ross County Historical Society in conjunction with the Mound City Chapter of the Archaeological Society of Ohio, and Hopewell Culture National Historic Park.
View exhibits by local collectors featuring a wide variety of locally-found prehistoric artifacts, geo-facts, fossils, minerals, and geodes on display in the Society’s Exhibition Hall. Amateur and professional archaeologists will be on hand to answer questions and help visitors identify items from their own collections.
New this year will be a PowerPoint presentation by local antiquarian Gary Argabright entitled “The Excavations to Find Soldier’s Retreat” — the story of the military exploits of Richard Clough Anderson, his social connections, and his role as Surveyor General of the Virginia Military District.
The event will take place at the Ross County Heritage Center, 45 W. 5th Street, Chillicothe.
Admission is free and open to the public and includes tours of the Ross County Historical Society’s permanent Prehistoric Cultures exhibit.
