Archaeological workshop and 2019 Most Endangered Places exhibit
September 21, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.
Join us on Saturday, September 21, for an interactive workshop led by the Oklahoma Archeological Survey at Henry Overholser Mansion. The workshop will last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the discussion of prehistory and what to do if you have found a site beginning at 1 p.m.
This free workshop will be presented by research faculty from the Oklahoma Archeological Survey (OAS) at the University of Oklahoma. Workshops will contain activities for all ages and are open to the public. OAS will have a simulated archaeological dig, hands-on activities with Oklahoma artifacts, and a chance for children to try reconstructing pottery. For adults, there will be a chance to identify any artifacts brought in and as well as a brief presentation on precontact Oklahoma and what someone should do if they find an archaeological site.
In addition to the workshop, Preservation Oklahoma will also be displaying its 2019 Most Endangered Places traveling exhibit. This annual list of historic properties serves to spread awareness and will travel throughout the state to continue the discussion of preserving historical buildings.
The program is funded in part by Oklahoma Humanities (OH) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
