Birthday Bash and Archaeology Day
May 7, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Spiro Mounds Archaeological Center will be having a Birthday Bash and Archaeology Day to celebrate the opening of the Spiro Mounds on Saturday, May 7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The site will celebrate its 44th year of increasing awareness of Oklahoma archaeology on this free public day with no entrance fees, although donations are gratefully accepted. All day during the celebration birthday cake will be served.
Along with the birthday celebration, demonstrations of flintknapping (stone tool making), lectures, and Native American games will be given upon request. There also will be a presentation of the history of the Spiro Mounds site at 2 p.m. by manager/archaeologist Dennis Peterson. Of course, the regular exhibits will be available throughout the day as well.
If you would like more information about the Birthday Bash or how you can help, please contact Dennis Peterson at 918-962-2062 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The center is located three miles east of Spiro on Highway 9/271 and four miles north on Lock and Dam Road.
