Sunday July 15, Dan Wendt will present a program at the Boulder Lake Environmental Center on Boulder Lake Reservoir north of Duluth entitled “The Story in Stone: Potential Clues to Early PaleoIndian Lithic Technology”. Dan will explain the information revealed in the pattern of flake scars on stone tools and how archaeologists are using that information to better understand when the tools were made. The program starts at 1 pm. The event is free and open to the public. This is one of a series of public archaeology events a the Center this summer.
Next Monday through Wednesday, July 16th, 17th and 18th, Archaeo-Physics and the Otter Tail County Historical Society will present a public archaeology program at Fort Juelson.
