Archaeological Symposium. July 26, 2008.   The chapter will sponsor a symposium at Gander Mountain, Middletown on July 26th.  The purpose is to introduce archaeology to the public.   Chapter members will demonstrate making stone projectile points, spear throwers  and bows. The public will be invited to bring their artifacts for identification.  Chapter members can bring artifacts (in secure cases only) to display.  Chapter members will identify artifacts for the public.   Lets get behind this project, call Pres. Kevin Storms. at 361-1019 and arrange your participation .   We need set-up and carry away people, people to meet the public and to identify their artifacts, people to photograph artifacts and record them, people to manage the work area for safety (flying chips) and many other tasks.  You can help.   Let’s put our chapter on the map.
