Archaeology Month event, Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center
The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center will celebrate Archaeology Month with a lecture and a guided walk on Saturday, October 14, 2017. Archaeology Month is sponsored and promoted by the Oklahoma Anthropological Society and includes many more events throughout the month of October.
A lecture about the prehistory of this region will start at 1 pm. There also will be a guided tour of the site at 2 pm led by manager Dennis Peterson. The regular exhibits will be available throughout the day as well. Several expert flintknappers, or stone tool makers, will be on hand to show off their skills from 10 am to 4 pm. An archaeologist will be available to identify artifact collections for visitors during that same time. The Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center is the only prehistoric Native American archaeological site in Oklahoma open to the public and is the perfect place to celebrate Archaeology Month.
