The Minnesota Archaeological Society will host its annual meeting and dinner on Friday, April 26, 2019 at Hamline University beginning at 6:30 pm. Dr. Brian Hoffman of Hamline University will present “Along the Red Rock Ridge – Archaeology in a Sacred Landscape” after dinner and a short business meeting. The Red Rock Ridge is an outcrop of Sioux Quartzite that stretches some 20 miles across the prairies and farmlands of southwestern Minnesota. Dr.Hoffman has been working with a team of archaeologists, historians, naturalists, and American Indian elders to understand the cultural and natural history of this unique landscape. They have documented a diverse range of archaeology sites from ancient stone quarries to astronomical observatories. He will discuss how their collaborative work has transformed our understanding of sacred places and human history in southwestern Minnesota.
