2018 Final Meeting of the Year & Holiday Grab Bag!

The December 21st meeting will feature the Holiday potluck dinner and the Grab-Bag.

** Please let Stephanie know what you are bringing so we can make sure there will be a variety of food and drinks at the party.

Here are the rules for the grab-bag:
    1. You can attend the meeting and not participate in the grab-bag.
    2. Anyone who wishes to participate in the grab-bag needs to contribute one or more gift.
    3. Although archaeological themes are welcome, other gift ideas are also acceptable such as baked items. In other words, simply use your imagination.
    4. We are suggesting the value of the gift be up to $10.
    5. All gifts need to be wrapped and identified as to gender-specific if needed.
    6. All participants draw a number.
    7. Number 1 goes first followed by consecutive numbers.
    8. Upon taking a gift it needs to be opened and shown to the group.
    9. Following number 1 each of the other participants can either take a gift from the table or from one of the other participants with a lower number, however, you cannot take the same gift back twice in the same turn.
    10. If your gift is taken you can go back to the table and take another gift, or take a gift from another person.
    11. After all the numbers are completed and gifts opened, the person with number one can exchange their gift with anyone they choose.
    12. All participants are encouraged to take a gift from another person if they like that gift. This is what makes it more interesting. So don’t be bashful.

October 2018 Program: A GROUND SLATE POINT FOUND ON THE HUDSON RIVER ESTUARY

Program following the October 2018 Chapter meeting:

A GROUND SLATE POINT FOUND ON THE HUDSON RIVER ESTUARY
by
John Phillips 
In October 2016 a polished, notched slate biface was found by the author on the east shore of the Hudson River, 25 miles north of Manhattan.


Subsequent inquiries about this anomalous find led to a re-examination of slate as a tool stone, the manufacture and physical properties of slate bifaces, the distribution of slate projectile points and blades in Northeastern North America, and theories about the technology’s origin.

Excavation Volunteers Needed

New York State Archaeology


DIG THIS OPPORTUNITY!


Excavation Volunteers Needed

We are writing to make you aware of a very special excavation coming up in September, 2018. Excavation volunteers are encouraged to join Jonathan Lothrop, Curator of Archaeology, and the New York State Museum team as we continue our excavation of the Owlville Pine, South site in Canastota, NY. Owlville Pine, South is a Crowfield Paleoindian site dating back approximately 12,000 years. Crowfield habitation sites are extremely rare, and the Crowfield people are among the least understood of the Paleoindian groups that visited New York State.
We will be digging from September 10-14 and then again from September 17-21. No prior experience is necessary. We welcome volunteers to join us for a few days or for the entire 2 weeks, whatever fits your schedule. For more information please contact Mike Beardsley at 315-345-5094 or email Mike at casketeer@aol.com. You may also contact Jon Lothrop at jonathan.lothrop@nysed.gov or at 518-486-2992 after September 4th.
