Archaeology Day 2023 at the Ross County Historical Society
April 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Be sure to attend the sixth annual Archaeology Day hosted by the Ross County Historical Society in conjunction with the Mound City Chapter of the Archaeology Society of Ohio and the Hopewell Culture National Historic Park. The event will feature more than 20 tabletop exhibits with a wide range of prehistoric artifacts, fossils and rocks collected by members of the Mound City Chapter of the ASO.
Many items from the Historical Society’s collections which are not currently on display will also be exhibited – including mammoth and mastodon teeth, geodes, fossils, rocks, minerals and a variety of locally-found prehistoric artifacts.
Need help identifying items that you have found? Be sure to bring them along and talk with experts such as archaeologist JEB Bowen and others who will gladly help you learn more about whatever items you have.
The event will take place at the Ross County Heritage Center located at 45 West 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.
