Michigan Archaeological Society Meeting Thursday, 5 November 2015

The November meeting of the Saginaw Valley Chapter of the Michigan Archaeological Society will be held at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History on Thursday, 5 November 2015, at 7:00 PM. In what is certain to be a fascinating program, Dr. Scott Beld will present research related to his excavations at the Early Woodland Arthusburg Hill site in Ionia County. With a construction date of around 400 B.C., the earthwork enclosure at Arthursburg Hill is the earliest earthwork enclosure known in Michigan (other earthwork enclosures in Michigan are from the Late Woodland Period). As always, the public is invited and encouraged to attend.

To whet your appetite for the program, here are a few Early Woodland projectilepoint types from the various sites in the Saginaw Valley.
